The mission of the USASF/IASF is to promote the positive life experience of all star dance. The USASF is a not for profit organization that is dedicated to safety standards, coaches’ education and providing a safe environment that allows for the continued growth of all star dance across the country, granting the privilege of membership to individuals and organizations committed to that mission. This privilege may be withdrawn by the USASF/IASF if it is found that the member’s conduct is not in line with the mission of the organization or the best interest of the sport and those who participate in it.
The USASF/IASF has adopted this Professional Responsibility Code intended to establish written principles that should guide conduct to all USASF/IASF membership in situations that have Professional ethical implications.
This Professional Responsibility Code is offered to confirm to the members of the USASF/IASF the intent and will of the USASF/IASF leadership to safeguard the best interests of the sport by having USASF/IASF Gym members act professionally and responsibly at all times. These acts of Professional Responsibility are guidelines suggested in order to maximize not only the integrity and legitimacy of the All Star Industry, but to safeguard the children that participate.
The items listed in Category 1 and Category 2 are not eligible for non-compliance review as these are not rules but guidelines suggested. Category 3 and Category 4 are designed to clarify that USASF/IASF Gym owners will be held accountable for the actions of their employees, their clients, and their athletes. Under these categories, any violations may be subject to non-compliance for review as listed in the protocol in this document.
