Keefe Tech Rules
• Absolutely no running on the deck or in the lobby
• No unattended children in the lobby or playing outside
• Swimmers must remain in the pool area – the locker rooms, pool deck, the pool and the pool stands. Swimmers should not hang out in the lobby or wander around the school.
• Sliding down the banister or playing on the stairs and ramps is not allowed
• Swimmers must change in the pool locker room and not the lobby bathrooms
• Water is allowed in the stands, no other food or drinks are allowed
Coaches supervise swimmers during practice. Parents supervise their own swimmers when they are not in practice. If a family has children in more than one practice it is not acceptable to leave swimmers who have completed practice unsupervised and waiting for their sibling to finish. The coaches must focus on the safety of those in the water.
The team has a zero tolerance policy for any behavior that puts people, property or the team at risk. Behavior that, in the opinion of the coaches and of the Framingham Recreation Department, is inappropriate will be grounds for suspension or dismissal from the team. If any conflict arises, please let a member of the coaching staff know immediately.
Family Volunteer Commitment
Framingham Swim team is coordinated by a volunteer parent steering committee and each family is responsible for completing a family volunteer commitment each season. Every family is responsible each season to volunteer at meets a minimum of two times. If you have more than one child on the team, you must sign-up two times plus one for each additional child. The Framingham Recreation Department requires every family to volunteer and support the recreational leagues. Failure to fulfill the volunteer commitment is grounds for dismissal from the team. Volunteers are needed at every meet for timing, scorekeeping, place-judging, officiating, bullpen, and snack-bar. Training is provided at the beginning of the season. We also need volunteers to coordinate team parties, fundraising, and other activities. Volunteer “sign-ups” are sent via email or accessed through the team website.
