ZERO TOLERANCE

ZERO TOLERANCE Policy Statement:

The F.H. Sherman Recreation and Learning Centre provides members, their families and guests with opportunities to participate in sport and other recreation activities in a safe and positive environment.

The Recreation Centre staff and volunteers ensure the most supportive climate possible for our users so they can enjoy their sport and learn about competition, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play.

Our Recreation programs are managed and operated by the Recreation Staff and Volunteers whose goal is to assist in contributing to the success of our programs.  It is therefore critical for the Recreation Centre to do whatever is necessary to ensure that deterrents are in place so those incidents of inappropriate behavior or activities detrimental to the recreation facility do not occur.

The F.H. Sherman Recreation and Learning Centre has approved policy of Zero Tolerance to Violence for all our groups and activities at the Centre and rented properties.

Included in this commitment is an understanding that organizations or groups that rent our facility, must also take responsibility for the behavior of all participants associated with players, parents, officials, and spectators.

It is critical, then, that the F.H. Sherman Recreation and Learning Centre do all things necessary to ensure that deterrents are in place to ensure that incidents of inappropriate or violent behavior do not occur in our recreational facilities.

ALL ALCOHOL, DRUGS & TOBACCO (OR SMOKE-RELATED PRODUCTS) ARE PROHIBITED ON ANY PART OF OUR PROPERTY.

PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN ANY PART OF OUR FACILITY, INDOOR OR OUTDOORS.

Zero tolerance policy surrounding disruptive and violent behavior (incld. intimidation) to members of the league, referees or Dofasco staff.
