After School Sports Code of Conduct
Interscholastic athletic competition should demonstrate high standards of ethics and sportsmanship and promote the development of good character and other important life skills. The highest potential of sports is achieved when participants are committed to pursuing victory with honor according to six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship (the "Six Pillars of Character" This Code applies to all student-athletes involved in interscholastic sports in California. I understand that, in order to participate in our school athletics program, I must act in accordance with the following:
TRUSTWORTHINESS: be worthy of trust in all I do.
Integrity - live up to high ideals of ethics and sportsmanship and always pursue victory with honor; do what's right even when it's unpopular or personally costly.
Honesty - live and compete honorably; lying, cheating, stealing or engaging in any other dishonest or unsportsmanlike conduct is not tolerated.
Reliability - fulfill commitments; do what I say I will do; be on time to practices and games.
Loyalty - be loyal to my school and team; put the team above personal glory.
RESPECT: treat all people with respect all the time and require the same of other student-athletes.
Respect Opponents - live and play with class; be a good sport; be gracious in victory and accept defeat with dignity; give fallen opponents help, compliment extraordinary performance, show sincere respect in pre-and post-game rituals.

Respect Officials - honor the officials by not questioning call or decisions made by them.
Respect Environment - WATER ONLY IN ALL GYMS!; follow all Fisher and visiting campus rules; take care of equipment and issued uniforms.
Importance of Education - be a student first and commit to getting the best education I can.
