UIL Sportsmanship Expectations

The UIL Sportsmanship Manual and the rules for District 22-4A list these expectations for acceptable behavior by student groups and by spectators:

  • always provide positive support for your team, rather than intimidating or ridiculing the other team.
  • assist cheerleaders with yells, chants, etc. and be a working part of pep rallies with preparation, organization, and involvement.
  • treat opposing players, coaches, spectators, and support groups with respect and enthusiasm.
  • conduct yourself in an exemplary manner. Remember that you represent your school both at home and away.
  • respect the integrity and judgment of the game officials. Treating them with respect, even if you disagree with their judgment, will reflect positively on your team and school.
  • be an exemplary role model by positively supporting teams in every manner possible, including content of cheers and signs.
  • remember that school athletics are a learning experience and that mistakes are sometimes made.
  • a ticket is a privilege to observe the contest, not a license to verbally assault others or be generally obnoxious.
  • learn the rules of the game so that you may understand and appreciate when certain situations take place.
  • recognize and show appreciation for an outstanding play by either team.
  • refrain from the use of any controlled substances before, during, and after the game on or near the site of the event.
  • be a positive role model at events through your own actions and by censuring those around you whose behavior is unacceptable.
According to the UIL Sportsmanship Manual, sportsmanship is character displayed through athletic competition. The UIL further defines sportsmanship with their "Six Pillars of Character":

Trustworthiness

Respect

Responsibility

Fairness

Caring

Citizenship
