Fan Code of Conduct
Along with the PIAA and the WPIAL, Riverside believes sportsmanship is the most important aspect of interscholastic athletics and is essential to the development of Riverside student-athletes. Actions meant to demean players, team spectators, coaches and officials are not in the highest ideals of interscholastic education and will not be tolerated at any Riverside sporting event.
If it is determined that a student, parent/guardian, or spectator has conducted himself/herself in an inappropriate manner that is not in the highest regard of interscholastic athletics, he or she will be given written or verbal notice by the high school principal, athletic director, or an appropriate substitute that the conduct will not be tolerated. Any misconduct that continues that day or at future events will result in that person losing his/her privilege to be a spectator at any Riverside sporting events - both home and away. Spectators are guests of the school, therefore making it a privilege - not a right - to attend all Riverside sporting events. If a single occurrence is considered of a serious nature, there will be no verbal or written notice before the person’s privilege to sporting events is revoked. Again, any serious misconduct will result in an immediate loss of privilege to ALL Riverside sporting events home or away. The Riverside School Board of Education is in strong belief that any unruly conduct toward athletes, coaches, school personnel, officials, and/or other spectators will not be tolerated.
