Parent Code of Conduct:
- Healthy competition means doing your best. And learning that sometimes doing your best puts you on the podium, and sometimes it doesn’t. That’s OK.
- Healthy competition means being supportive of others. Encourage interaction! It’s OK to make friends with other competitors and even congratulate the winner. No one likes a sore loser.
- Give positive encouragement only. (Do NOT use profanity and please avoid negative comments.)
- Respect ALL riders, their parents, and race officials. No one is perfect, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t trying our best.
- Remember, they’re children. The race is for the kids–not for adults and their personal goals.
- Because we are dealing with impressionable youth, any inappropriate or disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated; offenders will be asked to leave the event
