YOUTH CODE OF CONDUCT

If you are a youth rider taking part in Skipton Cycling Club activities, you must read and follow our Youth Code of Conduct.

  1. Arrive for training and competition in good time to prepare properly
  2. Wear suitable kit (including a helmet) and clothing for all cycling activity sessions, as agreed with the coach
  3. Warm up and cool down properly on all occasions
  4. Play within the rules and respect officials and all their decisions
  5. Be a good sport by applauding all good performances, whether they are made by my club or the opposition
  6. Control my temper – verbal abuse of officials and other riders, or deliberately distracting/provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted behaviour in any sport
  7. Work equally hard for myself and my club – remember, the club’s performance will benefit, and so will I
  8. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, disability, cultural background or religion
  9. Pay any fees promptly
  10. Abide by the rule that junior members are not allowed to smoke on club premises or while representing the club at competitions
  11. Abide by the rule that junior members are not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs of any kind on club premises or while representing the club
  12. Treat all participants in cycling as I would like to be treated – not bullying or taking unfair advantage of another participant
  13. Cooperate with my coach, club mates and opponents – remember, without them there would be no competition
  14. Thank officials and opponents after competition.
