Athlete's Code of Conduct
Being on a school team should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for our student athletes. It allows for a greater level of competition and skill development than is usually achieved in the house league system. It does, however, carry and additional set of responsibilities and expectations.
 
Representing Queen Victoria School on a school team is a privilege that is granted to those students who have earned it.  Our competitors, parents, officials and spectators will judge our school by the manner in which our athletes conduct themselves. Consequently, only those student’s who conduct themselves appropriately, regardless of athletic ability, will be allowed to participate on school teams.
 
The following guidelines have been established:
  1. The coaches are in charge of the team and of the players on the team. They will make all of the decisions concerning the team and the players on the team.
  2. It is expected that each student athlete will do the best he/she can do during all games and practices. No coach will expect more or accept less.
  3. Each student athlete is expected to be a “team” player and to be supportive of all other team members.
  4. Each student athlete is expected to display the qualities of good sportsmanship and fair play, and to play the game according to the letter and spirit of the rules.
  5. It is important that the student athlete maintain acceptable levels of achievement, effort, behaviour and attitude about the school. Concerns by any staff member about any student, may result in that student being suspended from participation, or dismissal from the team.
  6. The ability and judgment of the referee or official is not to be questioned by any student athlete. Any displays of disrespect will result in the immediate removal from the game and may result in removal from the team.
  7. Trash-talking during practices and games is NOT tolerated. It is also inappropriate to participate in behaviour that embarrasses or humiliates another player.
  8. Similarly, any parents who put down students, athletes, coaches or officials, will be asked to leave the property, and this could be jeopardize their child's membership on the school team.
  9. Student athletes who participate in school sports should have fun doing so!
