Treatment of others:
The Randwick Archery Club takes a zero-tolerance approach to any form of violence, harassment, bullying, or discrimination towards its members or those participating in the sport of archery. If a member is found to be behaving in a manner that contravenes this stance, the committee will review the individual’s membership. This may result in that membership being terminated and/or the individual being prohibited from using the facilities again.
For a complete description of what behaviour can be interpreted as bullying, harassment, or discrimination, this can be found on in policy 5 & 6.
