During the year, photographs of athletes may be taken during competitions, banquets, clinics, awards and special presentations or other occasions. Your consent is required or parental/guardian consent if the athlete is under the age of majority. Media coverage is occasionally done throughout the competition season in order to promote the sport of Baton Twirling and to acknowledge club and athlete's accomplishments. This means publishing athletes' names and club associations in the local newspapers and on the CBTF website. On occasion, the media will attend competitions including radio, television, newspaper etc. At these times, it will be the parent's responsibility to provide parental consent to the specific media outlets.

Club Criteria for Obtaining Tape for BatonsTape on batons is intended to aid with grip. When learning rolls, proper tracking, and awareness of baton placement is necessary for the success of performing rolls correctly at this beginning stage. If an athlete trains with tape too early, bad habits can develop in the tracking of their rolls and placement and grip when tossing their baton.Athletes will not be provided with or allowed tape for their batons until they can consistently perform a double elbow layout.
TravelFor competitive athletes, there is the opportunity to travel. This includes locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally. When travelling, exceptional behaviour is expected as well as the same expectations listed above. All participants are expected to be polite, positive, well-mannered, cooperative, respectful, and considerate to all those encountered along the way, as well as those with whom they are travelling. There are many circumstances where athletes may be driving or rooming together. Good sportsmanship should always be displayed.
