The essence of good ethical conduct and practice is summarised below. All Club coaches, officials and volunteers must:
- Consider the well-being and safety of participants before the development of performance.
- Develop an appropriate working relationship with performers, based on mutual trust and respect.
- Make sure all activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part.
- Promote the positive aspects of sport (e.g. fair play).
- Display consistently high standards of behaviour and appearance.
- Follow all guidelines laid down by British Rowing and the Club.
- Hold the appropriate, valid qualifications and insurance cover.
- Never exert undue influence over performers to obtain personal benefit or reward.
- Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of alcohol and prohibitive substances.
- Encourage participants to value their performances and not just results.
- Encourage & guide participants to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour.
