CODE OF CONDUCT

 

At the North Wales Wrestling DOJO, we aim to give our trainees a full education in the art of wrestling as well as developing life skills to encourage cooperative teamwork, sportsmanship, support and brotherhood in our patrons.

 

Our Mission Statement:

“Supporting individuals and connecting communities through the teaching and education of wrestling.”

 

To achieve our goals we have set out this Code of Conduct for staff, wrestlers, coaches and trainees alike. These Codes of Conduct are a covenant between North Wales Wrestling DOJO staff, coaches, trainees and wrestlers to uphold the morals and values of the DOJO, and keep all parties safe, as well as maintain a cooperative attitude and uphold the ideals of good behaviour at the dojo.These Codes express our core values and goals, it is essential they are honoured and followed.

 

The Codes of Conduct can be summarized in the following three principles: 

  1. Demonstrating a positive attitude; 

  2. Setting a good example; and 

  3. Maintaining good relationships with all North Wales Wrestling DOJO participants, including staff, coaches, trainees and wrestlers.

 

1. DEMONSTRATING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

Staff, coaches, trainees and wrestlers are expected to show a positive, respectful attitude for everyone involved in the sport. Criticism and disrespect for officials, opponents, coaches or fans undermine the purpose of sport and encourage behavior contrary to the spirit of wrestling and the mission of the North Wales Wrestling DOJO.

2. SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE

Each person associated with the North Wales Wrestling DOJO is accountable for his/her own behavior at all times in or out of the dojo itself. coaches and staff should remember that trainees learn by example - it is up to the dojo team to set good examples.  

The North Wales Wrestling DOJO will not tolerate conduct that is detrimental to the wrestling, the participants, or the community. Such conduct includes: 

  • Vulgarity by staff, trainers, trainees and wrestlers; 

  • harassment or belittling of officials, coaches or staff; 

  • verbal abuse, threats or physical violence toward anyone before, during or after training; 

  • taunting of any staff, coaches, trainees and wrestlers 

We require thorough self-restraint by all participants. Everyone must exercise appropriate control over those who fail to control themselves.

3. MAINTAINING GOOD RELATIONSHIPS

Staff, coaches, trainees and wrestlers are required to maintain respect for everyone at all times. Sportsmanship begins with respect. Without it, the positive environment, which should be a perfect classroom for learning the values of wrestling, is completely undermined. Occasionally we will encounter those who do not share our values and high standards. If we allow ourselves to be drawn down to their level, we will have lost regardless of the final bell.

In an environment where our trainees are working closely with one another, it can be difficult to control jealousies and rivalries. The North Wales Wrestling DOJO is a team, and a successful team resembles a family in that members put their own needs second, behind the greater good of the team. Great care must be taken not to undermine the coach’s authority. As in most cases, a positive leadership example is all-important.

 

TRAINEE CODE OF CONDUCT

It is a privilege to train with the North Wales Wrestling DOJO. As a North Wales Wrestling DOJO trainee, I will:

  1. Work hard for the good of the school, and not just myself.

  2. Be modest and generous when I am successful and modest when I am not.

  3. Respect wrestling and its history. Respect the dojo staff and coaches.

  4. Give my best effort at all times.

  5. Show respect for the authority of the dojo, staff and coaches, even though I will sometimes disagree with his/her calls.

  6. Show good sportsmanship before, during, and after wrestling. I understand that wrestling is a work and that other trainees or wrestlers are my opponents, not my enemies.

  7. Conduct myself with honor and dignity and treat other trainees as I would like to be treated.

  8. Help myself and others understand the ways and means of wrestling. I will be sure they understand that dissent is not appropriate at training.

  9. Control my temper and not retaliate, even if I believe I have been wronged.
