Competitors Code of Conduct

  • Remember that participation in sports is a privilege, not a right, and that you are expected to represent your school, coach and team-mates with honor and dignity at all times.
  • Respect all the support people involved with Interschools events that enable the event to occur. These include but are not limited to: mountain, shop and lodge staff.
  • Participate and compete by the rules of the event.
  • If you disagree with an official, have your snowsports coordinator approach the NSW & ACT Interschools Committee who will pursue an acceptable resolution.
  • Control your behavior on and off the slopes. Verbal abuse of officials, sledging or intimidating other competitors, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behavior at any event – treat others, as you like to be treated.
  • Value and respect honest effort. Work equally hard for yourself and/or your school team. Your team’s performance will benefit, and so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good performances, regardless of which team they represent.
  • Cooperate with your school, coach, team manager, team mates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents, coaches and teachers.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Show consideration for the mountain and other users. Respect the rules that resorts have put in place.
  • Your safety and those around you is at stake. Observe the Alpine Responsibility Code.
