Public school interscholastic athletic events should be
conducted in such a manner that good sportsmanship prevails at all times. Every
effort should be made to promote a climate of wholesome competition.
Unsportsmanlike acts will not be tolerated. Players/fans are under the coach's
control from the time they arrive at the athletic field until they leave the
field. ANY ATHLETE/FAN WHO IS REMOVED FROM AN ATHLETIC CONTEST FOR FIGHTING,
OBSCENE GESTURES, OR PROFANITY WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR THE NEXT TWO GAMES. If
there are other reasons for a players dismissal from a game, the state handbook
and local regulations will take precedence.
The NCHSAA Sportsmanship Ejection Policy is that the following types of behavior will result in ejection from an athletic contest: fighting, taunting or baiting, profanity directed toward an official or an opponent, obscene gestures, disrespectfully addressing or contacting an official.
1st ejection: A four game suspension in all sports except
two games for football.
2nd ejection: Suspended for remainder of sport season.
3rd ejection: Suspended from all athletic competition for 365 days from date of ejection.
