Development
Unless requested by a coach, parents shall not interfere with the development of their child during practice or competition. The coaches suggest that all questions about your child’s development be addressed to the coaching staff after practice.

Supervision
Athletes and children must be supervised at all times. If a parent has to leave or can’t attend the competition, they must ensure that their child has proper supervision before an athlete can compete. It is important for parents to network. An athlete may be left with an older sibling greater than 16 years of age. NOTE: Athlete’s 8 & under may not be left without adult supervision.

Discipline
Any behavior detrimental to another athlete while representing Team Accelerate Track Club that is deemed Unacceptable by the Executive Officers is grounds for dismissal from future practice and competition. NOTE: A refund of registration fee will not be given upon dismissal

Attire
During practice and competition, athletes are required to wear sweat pants when they are not competing. It is recommended that during inclement weather, (rain, windy, or colder than expected temperatures) athletes wear proper clothing.

Uniforms
Team Accelerate approved uniform must be worn when representing the team competition.

Declaration
During the week of competition, parents will be asked to declare whether their child will participate in the upcoming meet. If the child does not show up, the parent will reimburse the Club for the cost of registering their child. In addition, if your child is a member of a relay team and the race is forfeited, the parent must also reimburse the relay fee. All fees must be paid prior to the next competition.

Designated Areas
During competition, athletes are expected to gather in the designated area arranged by the Coordination Committee. We will provide shade for all track club athletes and family members. In the event the tent area becomes overcrowded, athletes will be given priority. Family and friends should give up their space to athletes to preserve their energy for competition.

Sanitation
All parents and athletes must keep the areas Occupied by Team Accelerate Track Club for practice and competition clean and sanitary at all times.
