Code of Conduct Contract for Athletes and Parents
Our goals are to provide a recreational environment that is fun, healthy and competitive for all who wish to run. We believe this is the right of every athlete enrolled in our program. In addition we wish to protect these athletes from those who wish to violate their rights via mean spirited play, unsporting behavior and/or undue or malicious outside interference. It is the intent of the Temecula Valley Time Machine, Inc. (TVTM) to stop ANY and ALL malicious conduct. All athletes, parents, coaches and helpers who are connected with TVTM must read and sign this document.
Any athlete receiving discipline by a coach or an official of the Temecula Valley Time Machine for throwing a punch, participating in a fight or any type of violent conduct, or other type of inappropriate/malicious behavior, may be further suspended from running for the season. Any coach, parent or spectator receiving discipline, including, but not limited to being asked to leave, for violent conduct or other inappropriate behavior may be barred from attending any further meets and/or Temecula Valley Time Machine events, including practices.
Should there be an incident of a fight, verbal abuse, or punches thrown involving athletes, coaches, participants or spectators at any Temecula Valley Time Machine activity, then a report of this incident must be made to the highest officials of the Club within 24 hours of the incident. If the President of the Club is unavailable to receive the report, then the Vice President or a coach is to be contacted next.
The use of alcohol and illegal drugs will not be tolerated. If an athlete, coach or spectator is found to be using, or under the influence of, such substances, that person will be barred from attending the practices, event, or meet in question and/or reported to the proper authorities. The use of tobacco will not be tolerated at any venue where practices, events or meets are in progress. A person using tobacco at any practice, event or meet of the Temecula Valley Time Machine will be barred from attending the practice, event or meet in question and may receive further sanctions.
The President and Board will review reports of violent conduct, inappropriate behavior, alcohol, illegal drug, or tobacco use and similar incidents. In doing so, said person(s) may receive such input as such person(s) deem necessary. The President and Board shall issue a ruling and final penalty/sanction, which may be lesser or greater than those stated above. Once a ruling on the incident is issued, the President and Board shall inform the Club of the actions against the parties involved and/or penalty or club sanctions. In the event that a person who has been suspended or barred from participation is found to have participated during such person’s term of suspension or exclusion, then the President and board may issue further sanctions, including, but not limited to, Club suspension.
It is the responsibility of the parent to have their child picked up from practice on time. Practices begin at 6 and will end between 7:15 and 7:30. All children must be picked up no later than 15 minutes after the end of practice. Pick-ups later than that will result in consequences. The first incident will be a warning, the second, a $10 fine, the third a $10 fine and the athlete will not be allowed to attend one meet. The fourth incident will result in a report to the Board with consequences up to and including expulsion from the club, without a return of fees.
Any athlete, coach or parent refusing to sign this document will not be allowed to participate in TVTM activities including practices, events and/or meets.
