Indoor training - Jasper Freeride

Code of Conduct 2016-2017



This pol­i­cy was devel­oped by the Jasper Freeride Ski Team (JFST) Board to pro­mote an enjoy­able, respect­ful and safe envi­ron­ment for all club mem­bers to devel­op freestyle ski­ing skills. Suc­cess­ful ath­let­ic pro­grams all have a basic under­stand­ing of accept­able and coöper­a­tive behav­iour among ath­letes, par­ents, vol­un­teers, and coach­es. There­fore, upon accep­tance to the Jasper Freeride Ski Team, all mem­bers will be expect­ed to con­duct them­selves in accor­dance with the JFST Code of Con­duct.

Athletes will:

  • Respect team­mates, com­peti­tors, coach­es, par­ents, offi­cials and prop­er­ty
  • Not use alco­hol, tobac­co or drugs
  • Behave in a way that reflects pos­i­tive­ly on the team
  • Strive to be punc­tu­al for train­ing and com­pe­ti­tions
  • Play fair and dis­play good sports­man­ship

Parents/Volunteers will:

  • Respect and show appre­ci­a­tion for all com­peti­tors, coach­es, offi­cials, JFST Board mem­bers and oth­er vol­un­teers who give their time to the sport
  • Not be allowed on course unless work­ing as a vol­un­teer or offi­cial
  • Pro­vide pos­i­tive com­ments that moti­vate and encour­age participant’s con­tin­ued efforts
  • Respect the deci­sions and judg­ments of offi­cials, and encour­age ath­letes to do the same


Fail­ure to meet JFST Code of Con­duct require­ments may result in the fol­low­ing:

Time out – Skiers will be asked by the Coach to sit out (in Jim’s Den). Par­ents will be con­tact­ed by the Coach to dis­cuss the sit­u­a­tion and a mem­ber of the Board will be con­tact­ed.

Sus­pen­sion from training/competition – This will occur if a ski­er (parent/volunteer) repeat­ed­ly vio­lates the Code of Con­duct or for any action deemed to war­rant a more seri­ous pun­ish­ment. The JFST Board will deter­mine the length of sus­pen­sion.

Expul­sion from Jasper Freeride Ski Team – This is for any ski­er (parent/volunteer) con­tin­u­al­ly cre­at­ing a dis­turb­ing envi­ron­ment by repeat­ed vio­la­tion of the afore­men­tioned code.


Exam­ples of infrac­tions include bul­ly­ing, ver­bal abuse such as swear­ing or oth­er inap­pro­pri­ate lan­guage or ges­tures. Also includ­ed are phys­i­cal actions such as push­ing, hit­ting, spit­ting, or any oth­er action that would infringe upon anoth­er skier’s per­son­al space on the slopes, water ramps, or in the chalet.
