APPENDIX B: CIF CODE OF ETHICS - VARSITY ATHLETES
Athletics is an integral part of the school’s total educational program. All school activities, curricular and extracurricular, in the classroom and on the playing field, must be congruent with the school’s stated goals and objectives established for the intellectual, physical, social, and moral development of its students. It is within this context that the following Code of Ethics is presented.
As an athlete, I understand that it is my responsibility to:
Place academic achievement as the highest priority.
Show respect for teammates, opponents, officials, and coaches.
Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials.
Exhibit fair play, sportsmanship, and proper conduct on and off the playing field.
Maintain a high level of safety awareness.
Refrain from the use of profanity, vulgarity, and other offensive language and gestures.
Adhere to the established rules and standards of the game to be played.
Respect all equipment and use it safely and appropriately.
Refrain from the use of alcohol, tobacco, illegal and non-prescriptive drugs, anabolic steroids or any substance to increase physical development or performance that is not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, Surgeon General of the United States, or American Medical Association.
Know and follow all state, section, and school athletics rules and regulations as they pertain to eligibility and sports participation.
Win with character, lose with dignity.
As a condition of membership in the CIF, all schools shall adopt policies prohibiting the use and abuse of androgenic/anabolic steroids. All member schools shall have participating students and their parents, legal guardians/caregivers agree that the athlete will not use steroids without the written prescription of a fully licensed physician (as recognized by the AMA) to treat a medical condition (Article 523). By agreeing, both the participating student-athlete and the parents, legal guardians/caregivers hereby agree that the student shall not use androgenic/anabolic steroids without the written prescription of a fully licensed physician (as recognized by the AMA) to treat a medical condition. We recognize that under CIF Bylaw 202, there could be penalties for false or fraudulent information. We also understand that the Trinity Classical Academy policy regarding the use of illegal drugs will be enforced for any violations of these rules.
