Ethics and Conduct
This section describes the ethics and conduct policies of the Services offered by MyPickleballLessons.
- If the MyPickleballLessons instructor teaches in the student’s location, it will be maintained as a clean, safe place suitable for lessons.
- If the MyPickleballLessons instructor teaches in the student’s location, and the student is a minor (under 18 years of age), the student’s parent or guardian will be present for the duration of each lesson.
- If the student is less than 13 years of age, a parent or guardian must stay at the lesson location for the duration of the lesson.
- The student’s parent or guardian must pick up the student from the lesson location on time. MyPickleballLessons instructors cannot watch the student after the lesson is complete, as he/she will most likely be teaching someone else. Parents/guardians who are more than ten minutes late picking up the student will be assessed a late pickup fee of $2.00 per minute starting at eleven minutes past the end of the lesson.
- Parents/guardians and students will not possess, use, sell, or be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while attending lessons.
- The parent/student relationship is with MyPickleballLessons. To solicit a MyPickleballLessons instructor to schedule lessons outside of the MyPickleballLessons system is illegal and may cause the instructor to lose his or her job with MyPickleballLessons. Students, parents, and guardians will not circumvent the MyPickleballLessons program.
MyPickleballLessons expects teachers and students to be committed to creating and maintaining an environment free of sexual harassment.
Prohibited conduct includes, but is not limited to:
- Unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature
- Unwanted touching or physical contact
- Sexual propositions or unwanted flirtations or advances
- Comments about an individual’s body or dress
- Consensual relations or romantic relationships between teacher/student are inconsistent with the proper role of the teacher, and the integrity of the Services provided. For that reason, MyPickleballLessons prohibits relations between a teacher and a student during the period of the student/teacher relationship.
- To file a formal grievance, contact the Director of Recruiting. The procedure depends on the circumstance and the status of the person bringing the charge, and the person against whom the charge is brought. It is recommended that you put your complaint in writing, providing dates, times, places, and witnesses to the harassment.
