Fair Play at NWSRA is a process, intended to maximize the safety and enjoyment of participants, staff, volunteers and the general public accessing recreation and leisure programs and services conducted by NWSRA. Through this process, the concept of joint planning, interactive dialogue and mutual cooperation is followed to the maximum extent possible, requiring the commitment of NWSRA staff and the cooperation of participants and their families. The Fair Play at NWSRA process provides a framework for addressing reasonable accommodations, expectations of conduct, and matching the abilities and interests of the participant to appropriate programs.
Fair Play at NWSRA is intended to maximize the ability of the participant to comply with the essential behavior and conduct expectations by encouraging the participant to develop self-discipline, positive ways of interacting with others and appropriate problem solving skills, as well as provide a safe environment for recreation and leisure activities. The Behavior Code of Conduct requires all participants to:
1. Show respect to all participants and staff; take direction from staff.
2. Refrain from using abusive or foul language.
3. Refrain from causing bodily harm to self or others.
4. Show respect to equipment, supplies and facilities.
5. Refrain from kissing, inappropriate touching/hugging.
A positive approach will be used to effect discipline. NWSRA staff will periodically review rules with participants during the program session. If unsafe or otherwise inappropriate behavior occurs, prompt resolution will be sought specific to each individual situation. NWSRA reserves the right to dismiss a participant whose behavior endangers his/her own safety or that of others. If property damage occurs, NWSRA may request partial to full reimbursement from the participant, guardian, care giver or parent. NWSRA will evaluate specific proposals and recommendation for continued participation in programs when necessary.
