By accepting these terms and conditions you are agreeing to:

  1. Pay all membership and monthly coaching fees as specified by VICTORIA PARK CARLISLE SOUTHERN AQUATIC SWIMMING CLUB INC (“The Club”). If any Fee is in arrears by more than two months per member or more than $250 per family, The Club will suspend the membership until such arrears are paid, unless notice is given in writing to the registrar/treasurer with valid reasons for the non-attendance of training. All rights pertaining to membership will also be forfeited until payment in full is received.
  2. Abide by all rules, regulations and policies of Swimming WA and Swimming Australia including Swimming Australia’s Anti-Doping, Member Protection and Privacy Policies (available at www.swimming.org.au).
  3. Abide by The Club Constitution (available on Club website www.victoriapark.swimming.org.au).

  5. Treat fellow Club members, parents, volunteers, visitors, officials or members of the public with respect. The use of bad language, ridiculing, threatening both verbal and physical, manhandling, berating or any type of aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated. The Club has a zero tolerance to, including but not limited to bullying, discrimination (as per the WA EEO Act 1984), abuse, victimisation or harassment. Where a member becomes aware of, or witnesses such incident/s, in relation to the above and that member is in the opinion of The Club obstructing, failing to report or has withheld information pertinent to the investigation of the incident then The Club will consider this as a form of silent approval.
  6. Responsible use of social media including but not limited to email communications when commenting on The Club or its members.  In particular, any form of cyber bullying is considered unacceptable. Where the member is, in the opinion of the Club, in breach of this social media and anti-bullying policy then The Club may, in its absolute discretion, and notwithstanding anything in the constitution, immediately expel any such member from The Club with written notice of such action being given to the member.
  7. Being a member that I train or agree to my child/ren who are members of The Club to train exclusively with the coach who is under agreement with The Club to provide coaching services, unless written approval by The Club is provided.

  9. Providing proof of completion of PBTR - HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION and PBTR - CHILD PROTECTION courses if the applicant is 17 years or older.

Life Members do not need to complete these courses unless they have children swimming with The Club or are a committee member or Club official.
  10. Promoting the Club positively, this includes, whenever practicable, recommending The Club to family and friends by re-sharing and “liking” The Clubs social media channels. These channels are shown on The Clubs’ Web Site.
