Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club Parent/Guardian Code of Conduct
My child/ren and I have read the Youth Rower Code of Conduct and I understand that my rower(s) will be held to the standards of behavior contained therein.
I will encourage my child to follow the Youth Rower Code of Conduct and to resolve issues without resorting to hostility or gossip.
I will show respect for PVRC coaches, PVRC staff, PVRC volunteers, race officials, and staff and volunteers at hosting organizations who give their time to rowing for my child.
I will leave the coaching and coaching decisions to the coaching staff.
I understand that Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club’s website, www.pvriverfront.org, is the primary source of information about PVRC and its programs.
I will provide a current mobile number and email address to the club for reliable communication.
I understand that the app GroupMe is used for most communication between parents. If I choose not to install GroupMe or join the parent group in GroupMe, getting team and club information and updates is my responsibility.
I will inform my child’s coach of any medical condition which may affect my child’s ability to participate in practices and/or regattas.
I will remember that my child rows for her/his enjoyment, not mine.
I will insist that my child rows in a safe and healthy environment. I will support a sports environment that is free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco.
I will make every effort to show respect and courtesy to others when communicating via electronic means such as, but not limited to, email, texts, and GroupMe. If I have a problem to resolve, I will resolve it in person or on the phone and not through the use of public emails or messages sent to multiple recipients. I will refrain from resorting to hostility and gossip.
I will first communicate all and any concerns regarding inappropriate behavior to my child’s squad coach. If I require further discussion, I will communicate with the head coach. I may seek other vehicles for resolution, such as communication with the Executive Director of PVRC.
I have read and understand the above Code of Conduct and agree to abide by its guidelines during all team activities. I understand that if I do not follow this Code of Conduct, I may be asked to leave a PVRC activity. In an extreme or repeated situation, I may be asked to withdraw my child from rowing at PVRC.
I have reviewed the pickup and dropoff parking map shown below.
