Supervision of Athletes and Participants
SUPERVISION OF ATHLETES AND PARTICIPANTS
During training and competition, CLCR strives to create two-deep leadership and minimize one-to-one interactions to create a safe training environment and to protect athletes and participants.
APPROPRIATE ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTIONS
An individual meeting may be necessary to address an athlete’s concerns, training program, or competition schedule. Under these circumstances, coaches, staff members and/or volunteers are to observe the following guidelines:
- Where possible, an individual meeting should take place in a publicly visible and open area
- If an individual meeting is to take place in an office, the door should remain unlocked and open
- If a closed-door meeting is necessary, the coach, staff member and/or volunteer must inform another coach, staff member and/or volunteer and ensure the door remains unlocked
Individual Training Sessions
An individual training session(s) with an athlete or participant may also be desired or necessary. Under these circumstances, permission of a minor athlete’s parents or guardians is required in advance of the individual training session(s), and CLCR welcomes parents and guardians to attend the training session if able.
PROHIBITED ONE-ON-ONE INTERACTIONS
Except as set forth above, minor athletes and participants will not be left unattended or unsupervised during CLCR activities.
