Athletes should be aware that postings on social media sites are viewable by media, faculty, future employers, and college officials. Inappropriate material found by third parties affects the perception of our club and more importantly the players. The Sand Club does not condone these examples of inappropriate and offensive behaviors online: photos, videos, tweets, retweets, comments, or posts showing the under age drinking, personal use or possession of alcohol, drugs, tobacco/vaping, and paraphernalia; photos, videos, tweets, retweets, comments or posts that are of a sexual nature. This includes photos that could be perceived as seductive or links to websites exhibiting pornography and other inappropriate material; content posted online that is unsportsmanlike, derogatory, demeaning or threatening to any individual or entity or political party; comments about our club, another club, coaches, teammates, opponents, and those of differing socioeconomic background, gender and race. No posts should depict or encourage illegal, violent or unacceptable activities such as hazing, sexual harassment/assault, using the middle finger, full or partial nudity, fighting, vandalism, academic dishonesty, gambling, drug/alcohol use. Remember, everything you post is public information and can become out of your control the moment it is placed online – even private accounts, Snapchats or if you limit access to your profile/site. Once you post to a social networking site, any post, photo, or comment becomes the property of that site and may be searchable even after you remove it. If you are ever in doubt as to the appropriateness of a post, consider whether it reflects positively on you, your family, our club and community. Protect yourself by maintaining a self-image that you can be proud of for years to come! Our coaches or director will address the player of any situation brought to our attention. The Sand Club will find the best solution to protect the player and players at our club.
