Sportsmanship Code

Bethany Community School is part of the CCC (Central Carolina Conference for Academics, Athletics & Art). BCS and CCC expect students, coaches, and fans to exhibit good sportsmanship at all athletic events. The following ideals of sportsmanship should be followed.

Players and fans are reminded that every individual associated with the team represents their school and the entire school community; Thus, any inappropriate behavior on or off the court/field will impact greatly upon the overall image and reputation of the school.

  • Fans and spectators are to respect the efforts of everyone involved in any athletic contest. Any outstanding effort on the field or court, whether demonstrated by our players or the opposing team’s players, should be applauded in a like fashion. At no time shall a spectator demean or degrade any player, coach, official, or other spectator at any athletic contest.
  • Fans and spectators shall not take part in any conduct, including cheers or yells that are derogatory to our opponents or officials.
  • Students, coaches, and spectators shall treat the opposing teams, their fans, and the officials with respect at all times.
  • Students, coaches, and spectators shall respect the property of our opponents as well as that of our own school.
  • Spectators are expected to stay off the playing fields and courts during athletic contests.

Fans that are verbally abusive to players, coaches, or officials will be asked to leave the gym or field.

We expect all players and coaches to exhibit the highest degree of good sportsmanship and good citizenship at all times. They are to abide by all the recognized rules of their chosen activity. In addition, all students are to exercise good judgment in all of their actions to insure their personal safety and the safety of others. In the event of a severe rule infraction involving a co-curricular activity, the student will be referred to the school administration for disciplinary action.

  • Players or teams who damage another schools property will be held responsible for the cost of repairing or replacement of the damaged property.
  • Players or coaches who are ejected from a game will be suspended for the next conference game.
  • Players who use profanity, or display flagrant unsportsmanlike conduct during a game will be suspended for the following game. A second offense will result in that player or coach being suspended for the remainder of the conference games.
  • If a team is more than fifteen minutes late for a game, the game will be forfeited – unless the game officials and both coaches agree to play the game.
  • Students who turn fifteen on or before Oct. 16 of the current school year are not eligible to participate in CCC events.
