Code of Conduct

The Sherwood-Parkdale Skating Club (SPSC) Executive and its professional coaches are committed to creating a caring, supportive, fun, and safe sporting environment. To achieve this, we ask that all skaters and their parents/guardians, as well as the Executive, Board of Directors and Coaches, review and respect these guidelines:

All skaters and coaches will treat each other with respect, as well as the Facility and its staff. There is a zero tolerance policy for bullying, which includes verbal, physical or cyber bullying. Bullying can take many forms: pushing or racing on the ice, demeaning remarks about a skater or her abilities, “reserving” bench space in the dressing room, or interfering with a skater’s belongings.

Volunteers

Nationally Certified Professional Coaches will be teaching the instructional portion of the CanSkate lesson.

PA duties include setting up equipment, demonstrating skills and helping skaters as well as providing supervision for practice times and games. Sherwood Parkdale Skating Club members in the STARSkate program, who are part of the PA Incentive Option, will provide a minimum number of required hours (as set by the Board and Coaching Staff at the start of the season) to be completed per season/program requirement which will be indicated to the PA participant by correspondence, as part of their membership. PAs who pick up extra approved shifts, may gain credits towards future registration via their account.

Sherwood Parkdale Skating Club is run by parent volunteers. During the season, parents/guardians may be approached to help out in some way – perhaps for a one-time activity such as our annual year end event, merit events, or on a more regular basis as a board member at large.  Your support and assistance is critical to the success of the Club and your help is always appreciated.  Our volunteer Board of Directors are subject to following the SPSC Club Constitution and By-Laws.
