CODE OF CONDUCT TO PARTICIPATE IN ATHLETICS
AA Sports Code of Conduct
o 1st offense—Student will be denied participation from sports for one calendar year
o 2nd offense—Student will be denied participation from sports for the rest of their AA career
- The use of profanity, directed at officials, athletes, coaches, or fans will not be tolerated at practices or games.
- The “riding” of officials, excessive questioning of their calls or directly approaching an official in any way to express your dissatisfaction will not be tolerated at games.
- Inappropriate cheers, even if profanity is not involved, will not be allowed. Cheer positively for your team, not negatively against the other team.
- When an injury occurs to an opposing player, do not celebrate it. Sports involve risk of injury, and we want NO athlete to be hurt.
- Let AA be the “bigger” school. If an opponent, their fans, or their coaches act with unsportsmanlike conduct, it does not give us the right to behave in the same way. No matter what the conduct from other teams, our behavior should be a positive model for all to see.
