Social Media Policy


Please note that these social networking sites are supposed to be just that - social. Used in the right way it is a great social tool. It should be used to keep in touch with friends. Over the years, many Deep Dish Beach Volleyball Club members have had positive relationships with lots of different players in the country as a result of using social network sites responsibly.

These sites should not be used for winding people up, having a go, upsetting them. Nobody should believe it is okay to use a social network site in such a way.

Used in the wrong way by silly, immature nasty people it is a recipe for disaster. If people do not realise the limits of common decency, can't respect themselves or others then perhaps they shouldn't be using a medium that is out there on the web for all to see. Do not be one of these people. There is also no need to swear on these sites - it reflects badly on you and all connected with you.

Should any "conversation" you are involved in get out of hand with unacceptable comments being made, stop and get out. You should report offensive, racist, sexist social network comments made by Club members or members of other clubs.

We would remind you that the Club has a Code of Conduct which we expect you to adhere to. The Club will take action against any member bringing the Club into disrepute.

  • Physical - hitting, kicking, theft
  • Verbal - homophobic or racist remarks, threats, name calling
  • Emotional - isolating an individual from activities

All forms of bullying include:

  • Deliberate hostility and aggression towards a victim
  • A victim who is weaker and less powerful than the bully or bullies
  • An outcome which is always painful and distressing for the victim

  • Other forms of violence
  • Sarcasm, spreading rumours, persistent teasing
  • Tormenting, ridiculing, humiliation
  • Racial taunts, graffiti, gestures
  • Unwanted physical contact or abusive or offensive comments of a sexual nature

The Club and its officials and coaches will not tolerate bullying in any of forms during club activities or on the club premises. We are intent that we will:
