Included in this commitment is an understanding that organizations and the general public using Town of Shelburne property, facilities, and programs must take primary responsibility for the behaviour of all associated with them: participants, officials, spectators, patrons, parents, etc.

This policy outlines the measures and enforcement steps to be taken in order to address inappropriate behaviour.
