23 Sportsmanship and Behavior As coaches, we are responsible for the behavior of our athletes. Positive behavior is expected from our fans- paying to get into a game does not give them a right to be negative. A positive relationship between coaches and officials is always important. Please think twice before you react in a negative manner. Any coach who is ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct, or a Football coach who is given 2 or more 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalties during a contest, is required to appear before the State Executive Committee at the coaches expense. Schools must notify UIL within 3 school days if a coach has been ejected or received two 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalties. Please follow chain of command. 23

24 Game Procedures Cannot protest the results of a game after the officials have declared a winner. Officials decisions must be honored. Make sure that you speak to officials before they leave game site if there is an item of discussion (not if it involves a judgment call). A game cannot be terminated by a coach. Each contest must be played in full. Administrator in charge must introduce themselves to the officials and be present during the contest. 24

25 Coaches Expectations Emphasize that a student’s first responsibility is to be a student. Coaches must focus on instilling good values and building character through sports opportunities Cut as few kids as possible. (Maximum Participation) All athletes that suit out must play. Structure practices so that they are a positive experience for athletes. Always treat players with respect. Always offer assistance for improvement and words of encouragement. 25

26 Emphasize that all athletes, regardless of playing ability, follow all regulations. Emphasize improvement (not just winning) as a sign of success. Remember that you are part of the teaching faculty and coaching staff – please follow all rules and regulations. 26
