Expectations of Students During Extra-Curricular Events
Stelly’s students are reminded that they are operating within the school rules at all times during extra-curricular participation. We have high expectations of our students, and anticipate that they will be good ambassadors for our school and our community. Attributes like sportsmanship, honesty, fairness and best effort are at the core of our beliefs.
|The athletic arena is an extension of the classroom, and carries the same moral and legislative obligations for coaches, athletes and spectators.|
Players are expected to:
Stelly’s Secondary Athlete Oath:
|" I promise that I shall take part in extracurricular sports, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship and fair play, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams."|
Players are expected to:
Non-Medical Use of Drugs:
Discipline, Rules for School Team Trips

CONSEQUENCES OF BREAKING THE ABOVE-DESCRIBED MANDATE:
Conditions for Coaches and Sponsors
School groups are fortunate to have the number and quality of staff and community volunteers who enjoy working with young people. These adults receive no compensation, in time or money, for their efforts, and can volunteer in excess of 300 hours per year over and above their work commitments. As such they appreciate your support and encouragement! Furthermore, it makes a big difference when requested forms are returned promptly, and when calls for volunteer drivers are answered.
|Coaches will consistently display high personal standards and project a favourable image of their sport and of coaching. Remember, the athletic area is a classroom, with moral and legislative obligation required of the coach at all times.|
|In the interests of maintaining fair and equal athletic opportunity, students who demonstrate special skills and talent in a particular sport may not be directly or indirectly subjected to pressures or influences to enroll in a public or private school outside of their designated school boundary.|
A Discipline Committee exists to rule on violations of the Rules or Association Regulations including but not limited to conduct. Following due process, the Committee will determine a course of action that may include suspension of a student, coach, a team or a school from Athletic Leagues/Events.
