SPORTSMANSHIP AT SIJHSAA EVENTS

As Director of the SIJHSAA I would like to remind all players, coaches, administrators, and fans of appropriate sportsmanship at our SIJHSAA Events.

By Law - Article VIII: Sportsmanship - Section 1:  The SIJHSAA provides opportunities for athletic competition for grade school students.  We do so with the intent of enhancing their educational experiences and hopefully instilling them positive qualities in the areas of integrity, sportsmanship, responsibility, and competition.

By Law - Article IV: Contests - Section 6: During all Regional and State contests the SIJHSAA prohibits the use of all types of noise-makers, confetti, radios, rally towels, thunder sticks, camera lights, laser lights, and also tripods in the stands.  Signs must be no larger than a legal sized sheet of paper.(8 1/2 X 14)  Body painting materials shall not be administered at games or containers brought on game sites.  Body paint may be worn on arms and the face.  Appropriate shirts must be worn to all events.  Bands are limited to the National Anthem.  They are not used to give a home game atmosphere nor to create noise or to rally the fans.

By Law - Article VIII:  Sportsmanship - Section 2:  Any (coach, or otherwise - fan) ejected from a SIJHSAA contest shall not be permitted to attend the next interscholastic contest at that level (jv/varsity) of competition, or any other SIJHSAA interscholastic contests at any level in the interim. During a suspension coaches may not attend contests or travel with the team to and from contests from which sport they are suspended.   Additional penalties may be assessed by the school and/or the SIJHSAA.
