Set the right example for our children by showing respect and common courtesy at all times to the team members, coaches, competitors, officials, parents, and for all facilities and other property used during practice or competition.
Respect the integrity of swim officials by assuming decisions are based on honest, objective evaluations of performance. Only coaches may approach meet officials for clarification of rulings.
Respect our coaches and swimmers, also understand that opposing teams, including their swimmers, coaches, and fans, want the same positive experiences for their swimmers as we do. Help FFSC achieve our goals by avoiding criticism either verbally or by gesture. Look for opportunities to build rapport with teams that we compete and work with.
Demonstrate good sportsmanship during all practices, competitions and team activities. FFSC wins gracefully, loses graciously and congratulates their opponents either way.
Support your professional coaches as they strive to do what is best for each FFSC swimmer. Our expectations and methods are based on Ontario Swimming, the Canadian Swim Coaches Association and other recognized swimming authorities.

Your unconditional love and support before and after races will help them best.
Represent FFSC with excellence, respect, team spirit, good sportsmanship, and politeness. Maintain open and honest communication among all members of the FFSC family. We reach our common goals by working together.

Coaches are available before or after training, meets and competitions for feedback or to discuss issues.
Assist the coaches by not talking with or motioning to swimmers during practices unless clearing it with a coach first.
Do not speak harshly or directly to a child who is not your own. Please contact the Head Coach if you have an issue with another parent's child. The FFSC Head Coach will approach the child's parent, if necessary.
