CODE OF CONDUCT FOR GYMNASTS

Abided by Gymnastics Ireland

A key element in a Coach relationship is the development of independence. Gymnasts must be encouraged to accept responsibility for their own behaviour and performance in training, in competition and in their social life. Coaches must not encourage performers to violate the rules of their competition, and should actively seek to discourage such action. Coaches should encourage gymnasts to obey the spirit of FAIR PLAY

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR COACHES

Abided by Gymnastics Ireland

Coaches are responsible for setting and monitoring the boundaries between a working relationship and friendship with their gymnasts. This is particularly important when the Coach and gymnast are of the opposite sex. The Coach must realise that certain situations or friendly actions/telling jokes could be misinterpreted, not only by the gymnast but also by outsiders motivated by jealousy, dislike or mistrust and could lead to allegations of serious misconduct or impropriety.
