Code of Behavior
Young people involved in cycling have a right to participate in a safe and supportive environment. Peloton Junior Racing Team expects all Riders, Parents and Spectators to abide by a Code of Behavior for all junior activities as a basis for fair play and to encourage fun, friends and a safe environment.
Compete by the rules
Never argue with an official. If you disagree, have your coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition.
Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other riders, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviors in any sport.
Work equally hard for yourself and/or your team. Your team’s performance will benefit, so will you.
Be a good sport. Applaud good performances whether they are made by you, PS riders or fellow competitors.
Treat all participants in your sport as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
Cooperate with your coach, team-mates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Remember that children participate in cycling for their enjoyment, not yours.
Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
Encourage children always to participate according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances by all participants.
Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
Respect officials’ decision and teach children to do likewise.
Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
