Rules, Safeguarding, Codes of Conduct


The club abides by its Club Rules (previously known as its Constitution), and also operates within the SwimEngland Code of Ethicsas detailed in the SwimEngland Handbook 

When applying to join Maxwell all our members additionally agree to join our Governing body, SwimEngland (the ASA). Follow this link for more details on SwimEngland registration, and what membership entitles you to.

As is compulsory for all SwimEngland affiliated clubs, Maxwell Swim Club Ltd has adopted the current Wavepower policy in full, which governs how we protect everyone involved with our club, particularly with regard to Child Safeguarding.   Adherence to this is checked when the club re-applies for its SwimMark accreditation each year, but everyone is encouraged to play their part. 



Everyone involved with our club signs up to one or more Code of Conducts,  as set out in Wavepower.:-  

Code of Conduct for Comittee Members, Official and Volunteers
Code of Conduct for Coaches and Teachers
Acceptable Use Statement for Internet and Social Media

We also follow our own Good Lane Swimming Guide for best practice of swimming within our squads.


Please read the Club's Disciplinary Procedure  which guides what happens should the Codes of Conduct(s) referred to above be breached.​​
