NEPSAC Code of Ethics

As a member of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), Hotchkiss adheres to a specific Code of Ethics and Conduct, which applies to all NEPSAC athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. Family and friends are welcome to attend games, provided they abide by the following rules:

Spectators — whether students, faculty, parents, alumni, or friends — bear the important responsibility to the school for the atmosphere and conduct of games, whether home or away.

Spectators should watch games from those areas defined by each school as spectator areas.

Spectators must not run up and down the sidelines, call to players, coaches, or officials in any unsportsmanlike manner, go onto the field of play, or deface property.

Any action that detracts from the ability of coaches, players, and/or officials to do their best is not acceptable.
