Conduct at Carnivals

When you are touring or competing at carnivals you are representing your club, and must behave accordingly. The Team Manager will sign a declaration form for each carnival, guaranteeing that the conduct of members will not breach the SLSQ or SLSA Code of Conduct Policy. If a breach does occur, not only does the Team Manager face disciplinary action but also the competitor and club may be penalised.

  • At all carnivals and whilst on tour, the competitor must conduct themselves in a professional manner
  • Competitors who are representing Coolum Beach SLSC must wear sanctioned club swim wear whilst participating at the event
  • The competitor is required to compete to the best of their ability
  • Underage drinking will NOT be tolerated and members breaching this policy will be sent home at the parents cost and may face the Judiciary Committee
  • Any legal age member or parent supplying alcohol to underage members will face disciplinary action
  • Under 18 members will be required to abide by any curfews set by the Team Manager
  • Underage male and female members are not permitted in each-others’ rooms. Please remember the Team Manager has the overall responsibility
