North Sentral Kossuth High School prides itself in the area of sportsmanship. We encourage students and parents to act in the manner that reflects our school.
SPECTATOR CONDUCT (Public Conduct on
School Premises Iowa Code 5.716.7):
Spectators, like student participants, are expected to display mature behavior and sportsmanship. The failure of spectators to do so is not only disruptive but embarrassing to the students, the school district, and the entire community.
If a spectator at a sponsored activity become physically or verbally abusive, uses vulgar, obscene, or demeaning expression or in any way impedes the performance of an activity, the spectator may be removed from the event by the individual in charge of the event and the superintendent may recommend the exclusion of the spectator at future activities.
PARENT'S CODE OF CONDUCT
The Iowa Athletic Council believes parents play a vital role in the development student-athletes. We ask that this code of conduct be distributed so parents, players and coaches have an opportunity to read them.
� I will encourage good sportsmanship by being a positive role model.
� I will try my best to make athletics a positive experience for everyone involved, i.e., participants, coaches, officials, and spectators.
� I will insist my player treat other players, coaches, officials, and fans with respect.
� I will reinforce the school's drug and alcohol free policies and refrain from use alcohol and other drugs before or during contests.
� I will do my best to understand and appreciate the rules of the contest.
� I will show appreciation for an outstanding play by either team.
� I will be a "team" fan, not a "my child" fan.
� I will help my child learn that success is measured by the development os skills, not winning or losing.
� If I have a concern, I will talk to the coach at the appropriate time and place, i.e., never before, during, or immediately after a contest.
� I do my best to remember my ticket to a school athletic event provides me with the privilege of observing the contest, not berating officials, coaches, or players.
