Dear Students, Parents, Hampton Community Members:
We are asking for your support in providing positive role-modeling for our student-athletes. The involvement of our students in athletics and activities contributes to the development of their values system. Trustworthiness, citizenship, caring, fairness, and respect are lifetime values that are taught through interscholastic activities and are principles of good sportsmanship and character. With these principles, the spirit of competition thrives, fueled by honest rivalry, courteous relations, and grateful acceptance of the results.
The information below outlines the expectations of students, parents, and all spectators/fans. Please review and remember this information so that we represent our school community in a positive manner at all times. Sportsmanship is winning without gloating – losing without complaining – and treating your opponent and the officials with respect. It’s one of the biggest reasons these games exist. Remember, nothing beats good sportsmanship!
We have made a commitment to promote good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches, and spectators at all athletic events. Profanity, degrading remarks, and intimidating actions directed at officials or competitors will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the event site. Thank you for your cooperation in the promotion of good sportsmanship!
