Little Flower Catholic High School
Code of Conduct
THE PHILADELPHIA CATHOLIC LEAGUE
CODE OF CONDUCT
These are the rules established by the Philadelphia Catholic League regarding behavior at sporting events.
The student-spectator should:
- realize that she represents her school just as an athlete does;
- appreciate and give suitable recognition to the good in others;
- cheer positively and avoid "booing," not to mention abusive language or vulgarity as being clearly a lack of charity that breeds the same in opponents;
- avoid the use of musical instruments, noisemakers, signs and streamers as these are annoying to some and inflammatory to others;
- regard officials and opponents as honest; officials' decisions should be abided by, even when they seem unfair;
- be aware that if she continually evidences poor sportsmanship, she will be requested not to attend future contests;
- realize that a contest ends with the final whistle or other signal; post-game injury to others or damage to property is un-Christian and irrational behavior.
The student-athlete should:
- develop a deeply ingrained conviction that she represents a long tradition of fairness in competition;
- develop the self-control necessary for best performances in competition and life; losing her temper and consequent fighting or abusive language are failures in this regard;
- the student-athlete who flagrantly abuses these rules, even once, shall be dropped by his school from the team as she is unworthy to represent this League or his school.
