Memo to the President’s of all Ringette BC Associations,
- RE: code of Conducts
Further to discussions at the 2016 Annual General meeting, Ringette BC has made adjustments to the Code of Conducts and has introduced a new code of conduct for General Volunteers. The Codes of Conduct policy has not changed. The revised codes and the new code are now posted on the Ringette BC website (www.ringettebc.ca). The codes posted on the website are the codes that are to be used starting this playing season. The Codes are attached to this memo for your information and distribution as you see fit.
- RE: Registration Acknowledgement
The delegates to the 2016 Annual General Meeting gave Ringette BC the task of implementing policies that would assist club Associations to respond effectively to instances of misconduct by their members. In response to this assignment, Ringette BC has implemented a requirement that all adults registering to play Ringette in BC or who are registering their children to play Ringette in BC acknowledge they know the standards of conduct of Ringette BC anyone involved with the game or watching the game. The acknowledgement includes the list of penalties that may be applied for misconduct. The Registration Acknowledgement form has now been included with Karelo registration. Any registrations for the 2016-17 season that occurred prior to the implementation of the acknowledgement requirement will be sent the acknowledgement by the Ringette BC Office. Registrants are asked to sign the acknowledgement and give it to their Registrar with their registration. The Association Registrars should keep the signed Acknowledgements. This is an interim step. We anticipate that for registration for the 2017-2018 season and onwards, the Acknowledgement will be entirely electronic and will not require in the involvement of the Association Registrars.
