Sportsmanship Code

The NYSAIS Athletic Association promotes standards of fair play and ethical behavior. We encourage all student athletes, coaches, parents, and spectators to support teams and game personnel in a positive manner at all times. We ask that all spectators show support for everyone involved in the athletic competition by cheering for your respective teams in a positive manner and by abiding by the following Sportsmanship Code:

  1. I understand that the ultimate goal of interscholastic athletics is to provide an enjoyable and positive experience for all.

  2. I will be a positive role model by encouraging good sportsmanship.

  3. I will respect the game officials by refraining from addressing them or questioning their decisions.

  4. I will support the coaches by trusting their judgment and integrity.

  5. I will respect the rules of the venue of the athletic contest.

  6. I understand that I may be asked to leave the athletic contest if I do not adhere to the Sportsmanship Code.
