My husband and I feel our family is being targeted by our local shire, Sutherland Shire Council, and leisure centre staff. We are both swim coaches with our local club and our teen son swims in the same club. *The staff at the leisure centre have listened to private complaints or concerns by us and emailed them to centre management (at managements verbal request). *My husband was banned for two weeks for asking for another lane. The staff member said my husband harassed him even though witnesses provided statements advising it didn't happen. *My husband and I both asked a coach from another club using the pool to stop whistling as it was annoying, hurt my ears as I am partially deaf and interfered with our swimmers. The coach (also a staff member) placed a formal complaint and another staff member (a friend of ours who is 20) told me he wouldn't tell the truth as the other coach and he are friends. My husband wasn't banned due to lack of evidence. *When the centre manager rang re the item directly above I sent a text message to the staff member/friend asking why he lied and to keep him and his family away from mine. *I have now been banned from the centre indefinitely. *The staff member I sent the text to has also approached my teen (14) and accused him of flirting with our female coach (17) and of being a ladies man and doing alright with the girls. I believe this was said to provoke a response. The staff member is also dating a minor. *Even after the whistling coach being told he is not able to whistle, he still does which we believe is also being used to provoke us and have us banned from the centre. *Our swimming club is shocked as they have witnessed the events and also believe we are being targeted, but none of us are sure why. My question is this. Do we have any recourse? I believe my ban is unfair and am unsure on what to do and how to get the staff and management to stop targeting our family. There have been instances recorded of two other clubs who have caused trouble and their coaches abusing staff, which we haven't done, with no one else being banned. This is causing a huge amount of embarrassment and distress and could, in future, affect our employment chances with other clubs. It is also distressing to my son as one minute staff talk to him and the next they don't.
