Participation in Cocurricular activities is a privilege. As representatives of Township High School district 214, student athletes are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that meets the highest standards at all times.
It is the goal of Township High School District 214 to provide all students with opportunities to engage in athletic activities that enrich their education and further develop the core values of respect, responsibility, caring, fairness, trust/worthiness, and good citizenship.
Good sportsmanship and proper behavior are behaviors that are learned by engaging with others, modeling good behavior and by planned instruction. It is the responsibility of the administration, staff, coaches, parents, and the community at large to create a climate that fosters the development of these behaviors. This is accomplished by encouraging and modeling positive and appropriate behavior within the sporting environment while, at the same time striving for excellence.
Expectations for the behavior of athletes, coaches, and spectators at athletic contests, practices, and events are outlined below.
