Sports exist in our schools because we assume that they are good for our students; good in the sense that they are enjoyable; good in the sense that they are educational; good in the sense that they help keep our bodies fit; good in the sense that they provide a healthy outlet for our energies.
In order for sports to remain "good" for us, we have a code of sportsmanship to guide us, to remind us, to help us conduct ourselves in an appropriate manner. The "code" implies an expectation for all coaches, players, cheerleaders, and spectators. That code encompasses a few simple basic ideas.
To be effective these ideas must be clearly expressed to Heads, Athletics Directors, Coaches, Athletes, Students and Spectators.
Players and Cheerleaders must be held accountable for their actions if they wish to participate.
Spectators must not be permitted to remain at a contest if their behavior is not acceptable.
All should assist in the encouragement of proper behavior at an athletic contest.
Please contact Gary Bardwell, Athletic Director at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
