Code of Conduct

Spectator Code of Conduct


  • I will show RESPECT for my team’s opponents and supporters because without them there would be no game.
  • I will remember that participants play sports for their enjoyment. They are not playing to entertain me.
  • I will not have unrealistic expectations. I will remember that players are not professionals and cannot be judged by professional standards.
  • I will respect the official’s decisions and I will encourage participants to do the same.
  • I will never ridicule a player for making a mistake during a game.
  • I will give positive comments that motivate and encourage continued effort.
  • I will condemn the use of violence in any form. I will not use offensive language or harass players, coaches, officials or other spectators.
  • I will show respect for others by keeping my cheering at an appropriate volume. The use of air horns and drums are not permitted.
  • I will not partake in the unlicensed use of alcohol or illegal drugs while on the properties of all JANT venues.
  • Anyone not adhering to the spectator code of conduct will be removed from the gym (includes all 2018 JANT venues) by the Game Director.
