The WRRF Board of Directors (BOD) have established a set of guidelines for all participants of any WRRF hosted events. These guidelines were created to ensure all events are positive activities for both volunteers and participants. Participants (both students and adults) are asked to follow these guidelines throughout all events hosted by WRRF including all workshops and CalGames planning meetings. The WRRF reserves the right to limit participation of any individual(s) as well as entire team(s) from immediate and/or future participation in these events if the WRRF determines that these guidelines have not been followed. It is the Team’s responsibility to review this information with all members of the team including any adults and guests of the team.
1. Gracious Professionalism is expected to be demonstrated at all WRRF events. All participants, volunteers and spectators are expected to treat each other courteously and with respect. Note that all of our events are entirely staffed with volunteers and participants should never be rude or disregard requests from authorized event volunteers. Any concerns can be respectfully raised to any WRRF BOD members (or alternatively the CalGames manager for CalGames related events).
2. Being respectful and gracious also includes the interaction between all students and adults (both within the same team as well as with other teams). One of the WRRF’s goals is to inspire and promote STEM education. Any rude, disrespectful interaction is not constructive to the process of inspiring and learning and is not acceptable.
3. CalGames is unique in that we ask each participating team to fulfill a volunteer role. Note that these roles/work shifts are mandatory, and one of the main reasons CalGames has been a successful event year after year. Teams that do not fulfill their volunteer roles/service time slots may be prohibited from participating in future CalGames events at the discretion of the WRRF BOD.
