Suggested Code of Ethics


Coaches

A coach is to properly educate students through participation in interscholastic competition. Each athlete should be treated as though he/she were the coach's own, and the child's welfare shall be uppermost at all times. In recognition of this, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association acknowledges the following guidelines:

  • The coach must be aware that he or she has a tremendous influence either good or bad, in the education of the student-athlete and, thus, shall never place the value of winning above the value of instilling the highest desirable ideals of character.
  • The coach must constantly uphold the honor and dignity of the profession. In all personal contact with the student-athlete, officials, athletic directors, school administrators, the state high school athletic association, the media and the public, the coach shall strive to set an example of the highest ethical and moral conduct.
  • The coach shall be acquainted thoroughly with the contest rules and is responsible for their interpretation to team members. The spirit and letter of rules should be regarded as neutral agreements. The coach shall not try to seek an advantage by circumvention of the spirit or letter of the rules.
  • Coaches shall actively use their influence to enhance sportsmanship and citizenship by their spectators, working closely with cheerleaders, pep club sponsors, booster clubs and administrators.
  • Contest officials shall have the respect and support of the coach. The coach shall not indulge in conduct that will incite players or spectators against the officials. Public criticism of officials or players is unethical.
  • Before and after contests, rival coaches should meet and exchange friendly greetings to set the correct tone for the event.
