Club Dress Code

 

The spirit of the dress code is modesty and professionalism with the intent to glorify Christ. The goal is to minimize the focus on the body or outward appearance and maximize the focus on the development of ideas and communication skills. Students should wear modestly fitted clothing. T-shirts with offensive slogans, low- cut blouses, midriffs showing, and mini-skirts are not allowed.  Tournament dress code is professional (more details on ncfca.org.)

Code of Conduct

 

  • All club members (students AND parents) are to exhibit a kind, polite and respectful attitude toward others at all times and to behave in a manner that brings glory and honor to God.

  • All club members are required to stay within the geographical boundaries set by the administration of the facilities we use and are to strictly adhere to all established rules/regulations.

  • If a club member (student or parent) is disrespectful, uncooperative or disruptive, he or she will be given 1 warning. A second occurance will result in a meeting with parents and leaders. A third problem will result in dismissal from the club. If the behavior concerns a student, the leadership will consult with the parents.

  • Mistakes will occur, but how they are dealt with is important. Conflicts will be resolved according to Matt 18:15-17, whereby the offended goes “directly" to the offender to resolve the issue, refraining from gossip and rumor. Email communication is not considered “going directly.” If necessary, one or two board members will assist to resolve the matter.

  • Public display of affection at any club event (including tournaments) is cause for dismissal from Apollos. Your behavior directly affects club members and we ask that you please forego flirting, dating, and romantic relationships, instead treating each other as brother and sister.

 

Once you are members of Apollos family; your actions should be professional and courteous at all times. Discipline should not be an issue at any club event; this includes camps, club meetings and tournaments. Member are responsible for their actions. Negative attention brought to the club by any member will not be tolerated because it reflects on the rest of the club members.
