Coach Expectations
1. Resolution of problems and issues with nominations etc will be by the Club Artistic Rep. Coaches are required to work through the Club on resolving issues, and are not to approach the AAC VP directly.
2. We expect a level of professionalism from our coaches consistent with the position.
3. We expect that coaches will provide the necessary level of input and support, including the preparation of necessary paperwork in the required timeframes.
4. We expect commitment to deadlines for submission of coaches’ skaters’ lists.
5. We expect commitment necessary to ensure that skaters are not disadvantaged due to carelessness or inattention of coaches to the above.
6. The Coaching Coordinator task is now part of the Committee’s role. Please come to the Committee with any questions.
7. The Club expects that Panel Coaches are committed to working with the Committee in developing the Club, its membership and its coaching expertise, and in promoting all activities and development programs and classes organised by the Club, as well as any other initiatives that the Club introduces to provide a better skating and coaching environment for the Club members. As a minimum, coaches should encourage all skaters of the club to attend classes. All coaches where possible should attend classes which can only attract more skaters and so the classes feed themselves.
8. Coaches are expected to follow Club rules and floor rules, and to ensure that skaters also follow Club rules and floor rules. This is particularly important in relation to floor safety.
9. Coaches are expected to attend Coaches’ Meetings, and to be up-to-date with what is happening in the Club at all times. Coaches who do not attend a minimum of 50% of Coaches’ Meetings may be asked to give reason why they should be accepted on to the Coaching Panel in the following year.
10. Trainee Coaches should advise Club Management of details of accreditations that they are studying, and progress towards achieving those accreditations. Revolutions Club requires a commitment from trainee coaches to complete their accreditations within a 12 month period, provided that a coaching accreditation course has been run during the 12 month period. Student coaches who do not complete their nominated accreditations within a 12 month period may not be re-appointed to the panel.
11. Coach accreditations are expected to be kept current at all times.
12. As your coach’s insurance is due to expire at the end of each year, you must supply renewal details at the time of renewal in 2016.
13. Copies requested above are to be attached to the application, even if you believe that you have provided a copy in the past.

FLOOR RULES

· Coaches and skaters are the ONLY people allowed on the floor during Club time. Parents and non-skating persons are not permitted on the floor - this includes taking a ‘short-cut’ through the mini-rink. This is an INSURANCE issue.

· The basic rule on the floor is to be courteous to all other skaters, and to ensure that other skaters who are training are not obstructed if at all possible. There will be times when this is not possible. However a little common sense and an awareness of what is happening around you will avoid many problems.

There are a few simple right-of-way rules to avoid collisions on the floor. These rules apply to all skaters, and are applied in the following order:

1. Arm bands (lessons) with their routine music playing.

2. Armbands (lessons) without their routine music playing.

3. Skaters without armbands.

· Up to 4 single skaters may participate in a shared lesson.

· Up to 4 skaters may train in a group

· Coaches must also be aware of skaters on the floor, and make every effort not to obstruct skaters.

· Where possible, try not stop and/or congregate in groups on the rink surface.

· ALL Coaches are required to be aware of the Club rules regarding skaters eating on the floor. Food is not permitted on the rink or along the side of the rink.


GENERAL RULES

· All skaters within the Club are equal.

· To ensure that the Club is always welcome at the rink, the rink must be left in a clean and tidy condition after all training sessions. This includes the toilet facilities.

· To assist Rink Management, the venue must be empty by 9.15pm on a Monday and Wednesday night. Our hire time ends at 9pm – please do the right thing and clean up after yourselves and clear the venue as soon as possible.

· Skaters must at all times be pleasant, courteous, and show respect to the management, coaches, staff, parents and members of other clubs, whether at training or at tests or competitions.

· Bad language will not be tolerated for any reason.

· No sitting on the floor or barrier. No sliding across the floor on your backside or other inappropriate behaviour.

· Skaters must not act in any way that can be seen as overbearing or bullying towards each other, especially to a minor. If you feel a member, is not behaving appropriately, talk with a Coach or your Committee so it can be dealt with promptly and effectively.

· Any skaters found to be doing the wrong thing or breaking floor rules will be referred to their Coach.

· First Coach or Committee member to arrive at the rink for training time will make sure the table, music (ipod), signs, 2 bottles of water and first aid box are out ready. Last Coach or Committee member to leave will make sure it is all packed away in the correct location. It is not to be left to one person if more than one Coach or Committee member are present at the start or end of a training session. No training will start until the floor is checked for debris and all equipment is unpacked and setup. Capable skaters and parents may assist coaches or committee members with the setting up of the table etc.


GENERAL ARTISTIC CLUB RULES

· The Club charges a monthly training fee; this must be paid within 14 days of invoice.

· Skaters must be in the rink at least 15 minutes before a lesson, to stretch and warm up, except in the case of lessons at the beginning of a training session. Skaters should have their training books, armbands and drink bottles ready. (Suggest putting armbands on your drink bottle). Skaters should not need to leave the floor once their lesson is called.

· The Club will not be liable for injuries suffered during training.

· Coaches have priority use of the music system at any given time during training sessions and will utilise the music rostering system, so they no longer have to wait in queue for music while in lessons.

· Skaters wishing to attend a class or training session at another club must advise their coach prior to attending.

· The purchase of all skates (new or second hand) or other skating equipment (wheels, bearings, costumes) should always involve your coach. This way you can be assured you will be buying the correct equipment the first time, and will potentially save money and frustration.

Understanding and adhering to these guidelines (rules) will facilitate a stable environment for skaters to train and for the club to grow and mature.

--------------------


HEALTH AND SAFETY DURING TRAINING

· The practice of sharing drink bottles is strictly forbidden. Every skater must bring his or her own drink bottle and sweat towel to all training sessions. Sweat towels may be placed along the eastern wall (overlooking the carpark) on the barrier.

· Drink bottles are not to be placed on any of the rink barriers. This is a dangerous practise for obvious reasons. Drink bottles are to be left on a dedicated drink bottle table which will be located just adjacent to the DJ box. Towels to absorb spillage and condensation will be on this table and replacement water will be made available in this location. A permanent marker (so that skaters can label their bottles if required) will also be left on this table.

· Do not leave bags where other skaters can trip over them.

· No electronic devices including iPods, phones, tablets, laptops etc are permitted on the skating surface, barrier or drinks table with the exception of Coaches.

Having just one earpiece in during Figures practise leaves skaters vulnerable to collision. Please leave it all in your skate bag for safe keeping, or if important calls are expected, leave your phone with a responsible party off-rink (Parent, Committee member).

· The club will not accept liability for any valuables left unattended during training.

· Food is not permitted on the rink or down the side of the rink as requested by Rink Management.

PRIVATE LESSONS

· Private lessons during club training sessions are only available to club members, except as otherwise approved by the Club Executive.

· If private lessons are required outside Club times, then private floor hire must be arranged by the skater or the coach. For insurance requirements, training time must be booked in the name of the club and not hired privately. Coaches insurance through Skate Australia is only valid in club sponsored training times, not times privately hired by an individual.

· Skaters are free to choose their own coach.

· Each Coach has different rules, and the skater must abide by the Coach’s rules (as long as these rules are in accordance with Club Rules). 24 hours notice should be given, where possible, if a skater needs to cancel a lesson. If through exceptional circumstances a skater is late or lessons cannot be attended, it will be up to Coaches discretion whether lessons are cancelled, moved and if payment is still required.

· Coaches have the final say on who nominates for events – not skaters, parents or the Committee.

Skatestars learn to skate on Saturday is the club's main feed for new skaters to enter the club. Skaters choose their own coach at Revolutions so it is important that as coaches you are visible to the skaters coming through the classes so they know who you are. If you do not come on Saturdays the skaters will not know who you are, and whilst the committee can offer suggestions to new members, ultimately the choice is theirs to make.

I can't teach learn to skate on Saturdays, however still please consider accepting my application because:-(*)
As you can't attend Saturday classes, you need to enter a reason why your application should be accepted onto the coaching panel.

I understand that if a coach is to train/compete, the fee is set at a discount rate of their chosen tier(*)
You must select this box to continue

Coaches who do not train do not pay any fees at Revolutions, however coaches who also train pay a discounted rate as some of the time at the rink is held over for their skaters to have lessons.
At present the discount is 30% of the nominated tier rate. Coaches would just pay $5 to casual train on days not nominated in their tier structure.

Have you read, and agree to the Club's full rules (Policies and procedures)(*)
This needs to be agreed to.
