AIDKA Code of Conduct & Social Media reminder

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL AIDKA LICENCE HOLDERS Sadly we are seeing an increase in complaints about intimidation, bullying and generally unacceptable behaviour via social media in OUR SPORT. This must stop as of now. AIDKA does have a Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy (which is in the 2022 AIDKA Rule Book). We would like to take this opportunity to ask people to familiarise themselves with the Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy. Penalties can be, and have been imposed (including a suspension for up to 3 months for the first offence) for any person deemed to be in breach. For those who have AIDKA members under 18 we encourage you have the conversation with them regarding what IS and IS NOT acceptable. Some discussion topics are listed below. Be nice. Mean behaviour is not OK. Make it clear that you expect your kids to treat others with respect, and to never post hurtful or embarrassing messages. And ask them to always tell you about any harassing or bullying messages that others post.Think twice before hitting “enter.” Remind them that what they post can be used against them. Once they hit enter their comments cannot be taken back. Follow the “WWGS?” (What Would Grandma Say?) rule. Teach kids not to share anything on social media that they wouldn’t want their teachers, parents, AIDKA Executive — and yes, grandma — to see.Use privacy settings. Privacy settings are important. Go through them together to make sure your kids understand each one. Also, explain that passwords are there to protect them against things like identity theft. They should never share them with anyone, even a boyfriend, girlfriend, or best friend.Don’t “friend” strangers. “If you don’t know them, don’t friend them.” This is a plain, simple — and safe — rule of thumb.Defriend “friends” who are harassing or bullying them. Encourage your kids to leave chats, groups or defriend people who make them feel uncomfortable or upset. Or if they feel they are being harassed or bullied. Some great information and help can be found at...
