Boys and Girls Club of Bay Mills
"The POSITIVE Place for Kids."

Welcome to our Club Traditions.

Discipline - The Boys & Girls Club of Bay Mills/Brimley provides a proactive environment for members in which club members are made aware of expectations for behavior through verbal discussion and posted “Club Traditions”. 

The Club Traditions read as follows:

  • Treat all members and staff with respect.
  • Eat and drink in designated areas only.
  • Run in the gym only.
  • Use indoor voices and appropriate language.
  • Always sign in and out.
  • Treat the furniture, games, electronics and supplies with respect.
  • Clean up your messes.
  • If you’re not sure, ask!
  • Have fun.

 

The following are consequences for inappropriate behavior. The Club uses a weekly point system to discourage inappropriate behavior. Points will be assigned to individuals displaying unacceptable behavior. Individuals accumulating 5 or more points within a week will lead to a suspension that will be discussed with their parents and themselves. Repetitive suspensions may lead to membership suspension or loss of membership may be considered.  At the beginning of each week, points will be cleared.
 
Listed below are unacceptable behaviors with assigned point values:
  • Inappropriate language
  • Name calling

     The staff of the Boys & Girls Club of Bay Mills/Brimley will determine the amount of time a member is suspended based on the severity of inappropriate behavior. If a member attends the club while on suspension, they will be sent home.
     
    If a club member is suspended, they are not allowed to attend or participate in special event activities or field trips.
