Athletic Rules of Conduct

At all Howard County athletic events, we strive to provide a pleasant and safe environment for all spectators and participants. We ask fans to refrain from:

  • Intimidating or harassing the players, coaches, officials, or fans
  • Using profanity
  • Throwing objects
  • Entering the playing area
  • Loitering in the hallways or on the grounds
  • Those who fail to abide by the Rules of Conduct will be asked to leave the contest, and could result in a trespass letter banning the spectator from future athletic events at the school.

Admission is a privilege to observe a contest, not a license to display insensitive or offensive behavior. Enjoy the event! Be a fan, not a fanatic!
