                 Code Of Conduct
Each member of Team Manitoba understands that their participation at the 2011 Western
Canada Summer Games is conditional upon complying with the terms and conditions of the
Code of Conduct Agreement which they previously entered into.

Team Manitoba’s Code of Conduct Agreement takes precedence over any other pre-existing
agreement that the participant may have entered into with their Provincial Sport Organiza-
tion and will be in effect from the time the participant is under the direct supervision of Team
Manitoba.

The agreement therefore takes effect at the time of departure on Thursday, August 4, 2011 for
Phase One participants and ends on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 upon arrival home. For Phase
Two participants, the agreement will be in effect upon departure on Wednesday, August 10, 2011
and ends on Monday, August 15, 2011 upon arrival home.

                             Equipment
    Please keep in mind that you will only be away, depending on sport and phase, from 5 to 7 days.
    Most participants at Games will wear their Team Manitoba clothing the majority of the time, so
       an excessive amount of additional clothing is not necessary especially for a summer event.

        Each participant travelling on chartered flights is allowed to bring the following items:

        •     1 piece of checked baggage
        •     Maximum Weight – 20kg or 44 lbs.
        •     Maximum Size – 29 in x 20 in x 10 in

        •     Pre-determined personal equipment (Check with your manager as this varies between
              sports).
        •     All personal equipment must be transported in bags, containers or be protected with
              padding that is sturdy enough to provide adequate protection.


        •     Ensure that the baggage tags that are provided for checked baggage and personal
              equipment are securely attached otherwise it may be left behind or difficult to locate
              upon arrival if detached during transit.
        •     In addition to the baggage tags provided by Team Manitoba, ensure that all your
              baggage and personal equipment is identified with your name, address and telephone
              number.

Each athlete, coach, manager and mission staff attending the Western Canada Summer Games
 in Kamloops is provided an official Team Manitoba walkout uniform. The uniform consists
of a team jacket, t-shirt, shorts, pants, and hat. Participants also receive a sport bag which they
                          may wish to use as their carry on for the flight.

     The walkout uniform is not to be worn at any time prior to departure to the Games but
                        should be worn during the flight to Kamloops.

This uniform must be worn at all official Games events, i.e., medal presentations and Opening
and Closing Ceremonies as well as during the Games. You will be advised what specific items
                  are to be worn at the Opening and Closing ceremonies.

    No part of the uniform should be traded with individuals from other provinces until after
      your final event for Phase 1 participants or after the Closing Ceremonies for Phase 2
                                   participants have concluded.
                                                                                     17



	         	           Accreditation
Upon arrival in Kamloops, athletes will receive an accreditation badge that identifies you as a
Games participant and allows access to sites and venues specific to your designation. This will
be done on the bus ride from the airport to your accommodation.

Athletes, mission staff, coaches, and managers are required to wear their accreditation cards
at all times. The accreditation card ensures access to competition/practice venues and the
Athletes’ Village. Card information should not be blocked with pins, etc. Security will need to
see this information at all times.

If an accreditation pass is lost, please contact your Mission Staff or the Team Manitoba
Mission Office on the third floor of the Arts and Education Building located at Thompson

also be conducted throughout the week. Advance notice will be given.

General room tidiness is each participant’s responsibility. A light cleaning service will be
provided to remove garbage. Excessive room wear and tear, dirtiness or wilful damage will be
reported to the Chef de Mission and those responsible will have to personally cover the cost of
returning the room back to its original state.

All incidentals charged to the rooms are at the personal expense of the participant.

Any damage or missing items to any room will be the responsibility of the person/s assigned
to that room. If there is more than one person registered to the room the missing items will be
charged evenly unless one individual claims to have caused the damage or was responsible for
the missing item/s.

de Mission or designate and the Accommodations Chair.

                                MEDICAL SERVICES

potential risks (water sports) and travel distance to our local hospital. At a minimum the Host
Society will provide:

• Wound and injury assessment
• Provision of first aid
• Recognition of acute neurological injuries including c-spine and Brain injury (concus-
     sion)

University (TRU) Arts and Education building, a short-walking distance from Athletes Resi-

clinic will be through the parking lot side. Signs will be in position to direct you.

Host Society services will include management of an athlete’s injuries by providing taping
services, massage and therapist assessment and interventions. They will provide assessment for
returning to competition. The Medical Liaison/Assistant will have a medical kit with them to
provide any first aid treatments or taping.

The polyclinic is dedicated to the provision of quality acute short-term care for the athletes,
coaches, officials and volunteers, while minimizing the impact of the Games on Kamloops
Royal Inland Hospital (RIH). Patients requiring more prolonged periods of observation for
treatment may also be transferred to RIH.

You must be accompanied by the medical liaison or designate mission staff on your initial
visit. You may return unaccompanied for subsequent visits for the same injury or medical
concern.

Overnight on call services will be available for emergency purposes only at Athletes Housing

assessment and confirmation of the emergency concern by coach or manager. The Infirmary
will have minimal supplies for any treatment. This service is not intended to replace assess-
ment and treatment at the polyclinic nor is it intended to replace emergency care via 911. A
