As a parent of a swimmer(s) of the Manheim Swim Team, we ask you abide by the following guidelines:

  • You are responsible for your child’s behavior at all swim meets. Coaches will be getting the swimmers ready for their events and do not have time to police the team
  • Set a good example by practicing teamwork with all parents, swimmers and coaches and supporting the swimmers, coaches and other parents along with the values of Sportsmanship, Loyalty, Commitment and Hard Work.
  • Do not coach or instruct the team or any swimmer or interfere with coaches at any time (practice, meets, invitationals).
  • During competitions, questions or concerns regarding decisions made by meet officials are to be directed to a member of our coaching staff. Parents address officials via the coaching staff only
  • Support the coaches if your child(ren) violate his/her/their code of conduct and will discuss his/her/their actions with the coaches
  • Any concerns or issues should be raised to a Board Member

General Discipline Guidelines 

  • If a swimmer is being disruptive he/she will be warned
  • If the behavior continues his/her parents will be informed of the problem
  • If this does not correct the situation the coach and parents will decide what action needs to be taken
