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, parents/guardians of skaters and coaches will treat each other with respect, as well as the SPSC Board of Directors, SPSC Volunteers, Facility and its staff. There is a zero tolerance policy for bullying or abuse from parent/guardian(s) or skaters which includes verbal, physical or cyber bullying. Bullying can take many forms: pushing or racing on the ice, demeaning remarks about a skater or their abilities, “reserving” bench space in the dressing room, or interfering with a skater’s belongings. All concerns must be directed to the SPSC Board of Directors in a calm and appropriate manner.
