I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THE ABOVE LIABILITY RELEASE AND SIGNED IT WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF ITS CONTENTS AND SIGNIFICANCE.
As a member of the Lake of the Woods Barracudas (LOW Barracudas), I am part of a swimming organization that believes teamwork, integrity, respect and good sportsmanship are more important than winning. By signing this Code of Conduct, I agree to follow the rules for behavior and sportsmanship while I am a member of LOW BARRACUDAS. The following guidelines state the principles LOW BARRACUDAS expects all members to demonstrate and uphold.
LOW BARRACUDAS is fortunate to have experienced, professional coaches working to develop our children into better swimmers, and more importantly, teaching and instilling important life skills. These skills include time-management, self-discipline and sportsmanship. Your child will reap the benefits of swimming long after his/her participation with LOW BARRACUDAS ends.
As parents, it is absolutely essential that we give our coaching staff the respect and authority they deserve to run our swim team. Our coaches are hired for that purpose and the Head Coach oversees the direction of the staff.
