Club 2000 Rules

Club 2000 is a friendly enough club, but there are rules. There have to be, really, to keep everyone safe. These rules (or Policies and Procedures) tell members and volunteers alike what is expected of them, and what happens when the rules are broken. We have printed the rules in the newsletters for 2016, starting in April. Those of you who have been Club 2000 members for a long time will know that we have what are known as ‘Policies and Procedures’ - otherwise known as The Rules. These rules are for members and volunteers, and they set out how you are expected to behave at Club and what happens if you break those rules. We used to give everyone a copy of the rules every year, but most of you either didn’t bother to read them or simply lost them, so for the next few months the rules and what happens if you break them are going to be in the newsletter.

Members Code of Conduct, which is the Members Rules

for Club 2000:

1. Members will not be allowed to come into Club if they appear to be drunk or to have taken illegal drugs. If members arrive drunk or get drunk while at Club, they will be sent home. 2. On Thursdays, members must not hang around outside the Leisure Centre building. If they are coming to Club, they must come into the building and stay inside unless there is an activity outside with a volunteer in charge. 3. On Thursdays, members and carers MUST make sure that they are registered as soon as they get to the leisure centre BEFORE they do anything else 4. Members must not fight with or hurt other members or volunteers 5. Members should try to respect (listen to) other members or volunteers 6. Members must not take anything that belongs to anybody else without that person’s permission 7. The volunteers are there to run activities and to help the members to enjoy those activities. Members MUST do as the volunteer in charge of the activity that he or she is taking part in says. This will help to keep members and volunteers safe from being hurt or from getting into trouble with the staff at the leisure centre. 8. Members must not damage on purpose the room they are in or anything belonging to anybody else. 9. Members are expected to pay their membership money and money for outings when asked to do so. 10. New members may come to Club three times without joining. If they want to come to Club after the third time, they must fill out a membership form and pay the membership money.

This is what happens if you break these rules:-

Disciplinary Procedure for Members.

1. Any volunteer who sees a member behaving in a dangerous way or against the Members Code of Conduct will tell the member to stop the behaviour. 2. If the behaviour continues, the volunteer will tell the session leader (the person running the activity) who will tell the member to stop the behaviour. 3. There are special rules for swimming. They are on a different page (and will be in next month’s newsletter) 4. For all other activities at the leisure centre and all activities away from the leisure centre, if the behaviour happens again, the Chairperson, or, if he or she is not available, the Secretary or Treasurer will tell the member to stop the behaviour 5. If the behaviour happens again, the Chairperson will send the member a WRITTEN WARNING 6. If the behaviour happens again, the member will be asked to appear in front of the committee, who may decide to SUSPEND MEMBERSHIP temporarily or END MEMBERSHIP permanently. The member may bring a parent, carer or other advocate to the meeting. The committee’s decision will be final. If the behaviour is very dangerous, or violent or otherwise obviously very serious, step 5 or step 6 will be taken even in the behaviour has happened only once. If the member thinks the way he or she has been treated under steps 2 to 5 is unfair, he or she may appeal to the committee. The member will be invited to come to a full committee meeting with a parent, carer or other advocate to talk about the situation. The committee’s decision will be final.
