ON’T BE AN ANGRY SPORTS FAN! PLEASE STAY CLASSY OR STAY HOME! I have been receiving complaints that a few of our parents, students, and friends have been behaving poorly at various basketball games this season. Screaming at referees, taunting other team’s players or coaches, and parents yelling too crazily at our own players or their own children. Loud and passionate is fine, but always positive. We are to model sportsmanship for our young people and provide support without berating or tearing down those involved in the games. When at an event, here sports, we are representing God, family, and school - in that order; so we want to support our young people, coaches, & referees and do so with class!
+Over the years, throughout the CYO, we have had to ban an occasional parent or two from attending games due to continued unsportsmanlike comments and rants.
+Remember, if a referee, administrator, coach, or Athletic Board Officer has to ask a fan(s) to settle down, or to cease with the rantings, then they should do so.
+If a referee, administrator, coach, or Athletic Board Officer instructs a fan(s) to leave the arena or playing area, then they should do so. At this point, any arguing, confrontation, and/or failure to leave will result in a call to local law enforcement for removal.
+Any adult or student who is asked to leave a game will be suspended, at minimum, for the next game.
+Finally, I have reprinted below the Cardinal Athletic Code of Conduct Agreement from the Parent Handbook. Every parent signs an acknowledgement of the Handbook before each new school year. Please review the Code and let’s move forward in a sporting manner.
Over the years, at times, I have yelled too much or been too demanding on my own children at times. No excuses. It was poor behavior and it stopped. These are games with young people involved. We need to enjoy their efforts and stay classy! - Rob S.
