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, shakers, 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.
