FWISC Skaters and Parents,
Our club takes your safety seriously. To that end, your board members and all coaches associated with FWISC are Safe Sport certified through US Figure Skating.
We also discuss member issues, rights and responsibilities, and have determined the importance of updating our membership packet to include a "Skater Code of Conduct" to ensure alignment to behavior standards.
Additionally, we want to resend our complaint procedure. It is important for the safety of our skaters, volunteers, coaches and board members that this procedure be followed when behavior standards are violated. Please do NOT approach a youth skater outside your family concerning their behavior.
To ensure receipt and alignment, please take the following actions:
- Review the skater code of conduct with your skater, sign and return the document by email or delivered to Alena Lunin, Theresa Overy, or Angela Zimmerman by October 1, 2020.
- Review the complaint procedure with your skater, sign and return the document by email or delivered to Alena Lunin, Theresa Overy, or Angela Zimmerman by October 1, 2020.
For your reference, both documents can be obtained from the links above.
Lastly, as we know that not all members of the FWISC have met, much less become friends, it is the expectation that we will all be friendly. Treat each other kindly and with respect. And, knowing that everyone has a bad day once in a while, please have patience with each other when frustrations, or disappointments, or emotions get the best of us.
Thank you, and please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
Safe Sport Chair, Director at Large, FWISC
