· 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.
