2.   Alcohol and smoking is unacceptable when in charge of or responsible for the welfare of swimmers.

3.   When dealing with persons under 18 years of age, avoid unaccompanied and unobserved activities with such persons and demonstrate a high degree of individual responsibility as your words and actions are an example.
