Volunteersí Code of Conduct


Turtles swimming Club recognises the valuable contribution our volunteers  make to the weekly swim sessions.

Volunteers will be required to provide reference details prior to their formal induction.

Volunteers must;

At all times adhere to the rules of Turtles Swimming Club and Highgrove Pool (or the Leisure Centre in use in the case of competitions.)

At all times adhere to the Turtlesí Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy.  

At all times adhere to the Turtlesí Equity Policy.

Consistently display high standards of behaviour.

Consider the wellbeing and safety of participants before performance.

Develop an appropriate working relationship with participants based on mutual trust and respect.

Treat all swimmers with respect and dignity, value their worth and treat everyone equally recognising their needs and ability within the context of the sport.

Encourage and guide swimmers to accept responsibility for their own behaviour and performance.

Treat all information of a personal nature about individual swimmers as confidential.

Encourage all swimmers to obey the spirit of the rules and regulations both in and out of the pool.

Never encourage or condone swimmers, volunteers, officials or parents to violate the rules of the club or the sports and report any violations appropriately.

Any behaviour difficulties from swimmers should be referred to a senior swim teacher.

Treat all competitors and other club teams with respect, whether that is in victory or defeat and encourage all team members and fellow club members to do the same.

Never exert undue pressure on participants to obtain personal benefit or reward.

Areas of development for swimmers will be approached in a positive constructive manner. (Verbal or physical reprimands are never acceptable)

All volunteers will ensure they treat other volunteers with the courtesy and respect they deserve for giving up their time for the club.
