Code of Conduct


All participants and their guests are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times while participating, spectating or attending any program or activity sponsored by NSSRA. This includes participation in programs that may or may not require an admission fee. For the purpose of the Code of Conduct, the term “program” refers to all recreational events you may attend as a participant, spectator or visitor sponsored by NSSRA.

Equal Access

No eligible participant shall, on the basis of race, creed, national origin or disability, be denied equal access to programs, activities, services or benefits or be limited in the exercise of any right, privilege, advantage or opportunity. If any special accommodations are necessary for participation in any program or to receive any service provided by NSSRA, please notify staff upon registration.

Participants and their guests shall:

  • Show respect to all participants and program staff and/or supervisors.
  • Take direction from program staff and/or supervisors.
  • Refrain from using abusive or foul language.
  • Refrain from causing bodily harm to self, other participants or program staff and/or supervisors.
  • Refrain from bullying other participants or program staff and/or supervisors.
  • Show respect to equipment, supplies and facilities.

Participant Expectations

  • Clean, dry clothing.
  • No bowel/bladder problems upon arrival at the transportation location or program. If this is a concern, extra clean clothing, clean–up supplies and Depends™ garments or similar items must be sent with the participant.
  • Attention to body odor.
  • Overall appearance should be clean.
  • Appropriate attire for program participation. If you have questions about the type of attire participants should wear for a particular program, please contact our office.
  • NSSRA staff will also be consistent in stressing personal hygiene while participants are in our programs and will not return participant(s) in an unclean manner at the end of a program.


A positive approach is used when disciplining. Program staff may discuss the Code of Conduct with all program participants prior to the start of the program and will periodically review the Code of Conduct. If inappropriate behavior occurs, staff will develop a solution specific to each situation as it arises. NSSRA reserves the right to dismiss participants whose behavior endangers themselves or others.
