Code of Conduct Policy
This policy applies to all persons participating on a San Diego Council of Ski Clubs (SDCSC) trip, activity, or event. It is intended to maximize the enjoyment for all participants and provide guidelines for the SDCSC Staff, Trip Leaders, and assigned Assistants. All participants are requested to observe common courtesy and generally accepted standards of social and moral behavior.
In accordance with Federal and State laws, the SDCSC will enforce a "Zero Tolerance Policy" on illegal drug use at any SDCSC sponsored trip, activity, or event. Failure to observe this policy will automatically remove you from participation in future SDCSC trips, activities, or events.
Participants shall adhere to the requirements of SDCSC trip packages (e.g., lift tickets) and participants agree not to transfer, resell, or barter all or portions of that package. Only SDCSC, or the issuing agency may compensate the participant for the unused portion or permit transfer. Failure to comply may result in exclusion from future SDCSC trips, activities, or events.
Alcohol and tobacco use is allowed in moderation and where permitted by law. SDCSC Staff, Trip Leaders, or assigned Assistants, will ask a participant to cease any loud, obnoxious, or offensive behavior. Participants who refuse to cooperate will be reported to local security or local police.
SDCSC maintains a strict policy prohibiting sexual harassment and harassment because of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, age, or any other basis made unlawful by any applicable law or ordinance or regulation. Prohibited harassment in any form, including verbal, physical and visual conduct, threats, demands, and retaliation is unlawful and will not be tolerated. If, after a request to refrain from this behavior, the participant continues, SDCSC Staff, Trip Leaders, and assigned Assistants may contact local security or local police. Profanity and off-color humor is only permitted if it is not offensive to other participants. Please stop the offensive behavior if asked by another participant, SDCSC Staff, Trip Leader, or assigned Assistant.
Parents/Legal Guardians of minor children under the age of 18 are responsible for the supervision and behavior of their children. Children under 12 years will be under the direct supervision of their parents/legal guardians at all SDCSC trips, activities, or events. Parents/Legal Guardians are responsible for providing supervision of their children under 12 years of age during the time that they are attending a SDCSC function without their children (e.g., children under 12 will not be left alone in the lodging rooms).
SDCSC Staff, Trip Leaders, assigned Assistants, and/or SDCSC Board of Directors will attempt to resolve problems in a mutually beneficial manner. When resolution cannot be achieved, SDCSC Staff, Trip Leaders, and assigned Assistants have the authority to call on-site security or local police to resolve the problem. Participants may be excluded from a trip, activity, or event at their own expense and without reimbursement of expenses.
