The Bayou Swim League Zero Tolerance Policy

The Bayou Swim League has adopted a “Zero Tolerance” policy to be enforced during all sponsored events.
The Bayou Swim League (BSL) and its facilities and properties exist to provide all athletes with opportunities to participate in sport and other recreational activities in a safe and positive environment. BSL will ensure the most supportive climate possible for the children who participate, so that they can enjoy their sport and learn about competition, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play.
As with many athletic teams, BSL is managed and operated by volunteers. It is the BSL’s responsibility that they, too, have the ability to work in a safe and positive environment.
It is critical for the BSL, through its parents, reps, and coaches, to do all things necessary to ensure that measures are in place so that incidents of violent or inappropriate behavior do not occur in its recreational properties and facilities.
Included in this commitment is an understanding of that responsibility for the behavior of everyone associated with the BSL, including, but not limited to players, officials, and spectators.

Goals of the Policy

- To reduce or eliminate violence and abusive behavior at the BSL’s recreational properties and facilities.
- To promote positive cheering behaviors among spectators and fans.

- To increase the level of understanding among spectators and fans of the importance of creating a positive and supportive   
   environment for children's sport.

Definition of Violence

The focus of this Policy is on the behavior of players and non-players.For the purposes of this Policy, violence includes, but is not limited to, the following behaviors:

  • loud verbal assaults
  • threats and attempts to intimidate
  • throwing of articles in a deliberate or aggressive manner
  • aggressive approaches to another individual
  • physical striking of another individual
  • attempts to goad or incite violence in others
  • vandalism to building or property
  • racial or ethnic slurs and
  • Illegal consumption of alcohol or drugs.

The Consequences

Individuals who engage in any of the above behaviors will be subject to immediate ejection from the property or facility and a hearing with representatives to be chosen by the current BSL Reps. Those individuals who are identified and suspended in accordance with this Policy shall further be prohibited from attending any BSL meets and from holding any positions within the Bayou Swim League for a period to be determined by the current BSL Reps.

Incidents may be reported to the Police Department for possible criminal charges.

Where vandalism has been perpetrated, not only will the individuals responsible be subject to suspension as outlined above, but they also will be required to reimburse the BSL for the cost of repair.

We the undersigned, agree to abide by the Bayou Swim League “Zero Tolerance Policy:”

Volunteer Policy

Volunteers are vital to running a swim team. Dependable volunteers are needed in many capacities, particularly at meets.

Each family is expected to work a minimum of one job.  

If a parent or guardian cannot or does not wish to volunteer this season, you have an option to opt-out and a fee will be charged per family.

*
Opt-Out of Volunteering

Please tick the box "Yes, I agree" if you'd like to opt out of volunteering this season. 

A fee of $100 will apply.

Refund/Cancellation Policy:

As we call ourselves the “Westchester Dolphins Swim Team,” we approach the season with the goal of having all of our registrants swim at our competitive meets with other teams. While some young children do learn to swim by attending practices, the process of learning to swim is usually a lengthy one. This is best achieved by one-on-one lessons over the span of several months, rather than in a swim team environment.

Swimmers who withdraw during the first week of swim team practice will receive 100% of the registration fee.

Swimmers who withdraw during the second week of practice will receive 50% of the registration fee.

Swimmers who withdraw when the 3rd week of practice has commenced will not be eligible for a refund.
