Bad Weather Tips

SNOWCLOUDDear Parents, Coaches and Judges,

During the winter months, we all need to take precautions when planning to attend gymnastic competitions.  Please pay close attention to weather reports and please plan with care. As always, arriving safely is our number one concern.

Here are a few notes that I must share with you:

1. I am asking all hosting clubs to update their websites with current information. This will help with planning and distributing information to everyone. Please also have your phones staffed for emergency calls.

2. Most gymnastic competitions are not cancelled. This is where your own personal judgment must come into play and maybe you would prefer to leave the night before the competition.

3. Gymnastic schools incur a lot of expense when hosting meets and if a meet is not cancelled, please note that refunds will not occur.
For added safety, gymnastic competitions can delay the start of competition and adjust schedules as needed.

4. Please add extra time when driving in hazardous conditions, I want you to arrive safely.

5. Clubs should be sure their coaches have an up to date call list of their athletes. Developing a phone tree will help to get information generated in a more timely fashion.

Pressure

PressureRemember that “Pressure is a Privilege.” An oft-quoted remark from tennis great Billie Jean King — “pressure is a privilege” – means the athlete gets to experience the thrill of a meaningful moment. If the moment didn’t matter, there would be less thrill in passing the test…and less of a learning opportunity should the athlete fall short.

Bullying

BullyingHow to Recognize, Reduce and Respond to Bullying 

What you need to know to protect athletes:  One of the greatest lessons athletes take away from sport is the experience of being on a team where coaches and individuals support one another. Actions that demean or intimidate athletes, either physically or emotionally, can affect performance and team cohesion. Since bullying often occurs among peers, coaches can set an example with a zero-tolerance policy and emphasize teamwork and mutual support. Giving athletes a way to report behavior without fear of reprisal is also important.
