Athletic Code of Conduct


The actions of a student-athlete are a reflection of themselves, their team, their school, and their community. A student’s involvement in a school sport provides opportunities and experiences that are important to the development of a well-rounded student. First and foremost, all players must show respect for their teammates, coaches, and spectators at all times.

Student athletes must act in accordance with the following:

  • Class – Live and play with class; be a good sport; be gracious in victory and accept defeat with dignity; give fallen opponents help, complement extraordinary performances, show sincere respect in pre-game and post-game rituals.
  • Respect – Treat everyone with respect at all times, and require the same from your teammates. Don’t complain about or argue with official calls or decisions during or after the event.
  • Respectful conduct – Don’t engage in disrespectful conduct of any sort including profanity, obscene gestures, trash-talking, taunting, boastful celebrations, or other actions that demean individuals or the sport.
  • Role modeling – Consistently exhibit good character and conduct yourself as a positive role model.
  • Self-control – Exercise self-control; don’t fight or show excessive displays of anger or frustration; have the strength to overcome the temptation to retaliate.
  • Concern for others – Demonstrate concern for others; never intentionally injure any player or engage in reckless behavior that might cause injury to others.
  • Play by the rules – Honour the spirit and the letter of the rules; avoid temptations to gain competitive advantage through improper gamesmanship techniques that violate the highest traditions of sportsmanship.
  • Practices – Demonstrate a commitment to the program by attending practices; realize the importance of game preparation. Be on time, assist with equipment and come prepared to play.
  • Academics – Excellent effort and attitude within the classroom is a priority. Students must attend classes to be eligible to play sports

Participation in sports is a privilege, not a right. You are expected to represent your school, coaches and teammates with honour, on and off the field. Your coaches & teachers reserve the right to suspend the play of student athletes for academic and behavioral non-compliance.
