CSCA POLICIES


CSCA Code of Professional Conduct - May 28, 2020

This Code has been prepared by the CSCA as a professional and ethical guide for Canadian swim coaches and swimming teachers who are members of CSCA.

The conduct and ethical behaviour of a professional is determined by the degree of respect with which a professional interacts and communicates with swimmers, their families, peers and the public.  Coaches and teachers have a responsibility to encourage autonomy and personal growth and to ensure that athletes train and perform in suitable and safe settings. 


CSCA Screening PolicyMay 28, 2020

Screening of CSCA members and CSCA member applicants is an important part of providing a safe sporting environment and has become a common practice among sport organizations that provide programs and services to the community. CSCA is responsible to do everything reasonable to provide a safe and secure environment for participants in its programs, activities and events. The CSCA takes this very seriously, and is committed to, fulfilling the duty of care it owes to its members.
