Parents Code of Conduct

  • Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage children to participate, do not coerce them.
  • Provide positive focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Encourage children to always participate according to the rules. If you disagree with an official, have your snowsports coordinator approach the NSW & ACT Interschools Committee who will pursue an acceptable resolution.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skills shown by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from on and off field activities.
  • Respect the officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every student regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Show appreciation and be courteous to snowsports coordinators, parents, competitors, volunteer coaches, officials, team managers and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
  • Respect all the support people involved with Interschools events that enable the event to occur. These include but are not limited to: mountain, shop and lodge staff.
  • Show consideration for the mountain and other users. Respect the rules that resorts have put in place.
  • Your safety and those around you is at stake. Observe the Alpine Responsibility Code.
  • Do not interfere with the conduct of any events.
  • Smoking near competitors and racecourses is not acceptable.
