 NYSPHSAA SPORTSMANSHIP PHILOSOPHY

 
  • We believe that interscholastic athletics are an important part of education and support the ideals and values embodied in good sportsmanship.

  • We believe that sportsmanlike behavior is essential if interscholastic competition is to contribute usefully and constructively to the broad goals of education and to the quality of life of those involved.

  • We pledge ourselves individually and collectively to encourage and support the development and maintenance of a sportsmanlike atmosphere for athletic competition.

 NYSPHSAA CODE OF CONDUCT

 

  • A genuine interest in and enjoyment of interscholastic competition requires conduct that reflects the understanding that contests are part of an overall school's program and are intended to be enjoyed.  Behavior that reflects a winning-at-all-costs attitude violates this standard.

  • Interscholastic competition provides valuable lessons and learning experiences that are not possible in the regular classroom.  All involved must support the need to develop the ability to compete with enthusiasm and to accept winning with grace and losing with dignity

  • Coaches, players and fans should know that participation is an honor and a privilege that requires them to conduct themselves in a manner that brings honor and pride to their school and community.

  • Respect for the cultural and ethnic diversity of one's opponents, their school and community is a fundamental tenet of wholesome athletic competition.  This standard suggests that planned activity is needed to demonstrate a warm and friendly welcome, mutual respect and a genuine readiness to participate in a sportsmanlike manner.

  • Players should demonstrate both knowledge of the rules and respect for the game officials and their decisions.  Coaches and school officials have the responsibility to teach and encourage these attributes.
