Swimmers' Behavior

Before practice, swimmers should go directly to the locker rooms and change and then wait on the bleachers until dry lands begin. All bags must be left on the bleachers and not in the locker room.

When a child arrives at CHCS, that child should be at the pool and not loitering around school grounds. Also, if a child is allowed to wait outside after practice, please have them bring a one-time note to the Head Coach stating that. After changing, swimmers can sit on the bleachers and a parent can come in and pick them up. Having kids fooling around in the parking lot is unacceptable because it is dangerous. At all times, there should be no fooling around in the locker rooms or running around outside. Please speak with your children concerning what is expected of them in terms of their behavior. 

When registering for the Stingrays with the Belchertown Recreation Department, a DISCIPLINARY & TARDINESS POLICIES & PROCEDURES AGREEMENT is signed.

Safety Issues

Swimmers' contact info is always at the pool. Protocol for accidents: If paramedics need to assess any given situation, they are called; if they determine the child needs medical attention and parents can not be reached, the paramedics will transport the child to the hospital via ambulance with an adult, and remain there until a parent arrives at the hospital. Every attempt will be made to call all available numbers and to leave a message with a parent. Please be sure that all numbers are current and correct, as given to the town Recreation Department.
