The Charter Township of Canton strives to provide premier facilities, programs and services so that community members have the opportunity to participate in the highest quality of diversified fitness, recreation, social and educational opportunities. Guests and participants are entitled to responsive service in a welcoming, safe and enjoyable atmosphere. At the same time, Canton Leisure Services expects a reasonable and proper behavior from those who visit the facilities and attend programs.

To meet this goal Canton Leisure Services has established this code of conduct.  It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration for other people.

A zero-tolerance stance will be taken as it relates to criminal behavior.

The long-term value of the athletic experience is dictated by the relationships that grow from it, and the self-knowledge that it engenders. These relationships and experiences only develop after certain standards and expectations are met. Players that embrace the standards and expectations set by competitive sports will have a tremendous experience on and off the field. They will also have the most likelihood of success in achieving their personal goals and will be positively changed through this process. Players as well as all people develop at different times in their growth, be patient and encourage them to grow as individuals to be ready for their time.

If you disagree with the philosophy of the club, team or coach it may be in the player’s best interest to seek a new opportunity. This is a decision that is made by your family and will be supported by the club in all cases. Canton Celtic has a method for taking players through the development process. This method is frequently examined and re-examined.  This examination will not be influenced by anyone outside the Clubs Directors of Coaching.
