 KHS to Receive Second IHSAA Sportsmanship Award


February 13, 2008 - Knightstown High School will receive its second Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) School Sportsmanship Award this Saturday night. The award, which comes in the form of a banner to be hung in the KHS gymnasium, will be presented prior to the boys varsity basketball game against Hagerstown.

The IHSAA presents the award in cooperation with another sponsor, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJU).

To be eligible to win the IHSAA School Sportsmanship Award, the following ten criteria must be met:

1. Every winning school should have a written sportsmanship plan in place and on file in the principal’s office.

2. Every winning school is expected to have a method for sharing its sportsmanship plan with faculty, coaches, parents, fans and the student body (participating in this program constitutes compliance with this criterion).

3. Every winning school should show the 2003-2004 IHSAA Sportsmanship Video (which is included in the kit) to all school team members of all sports as well as the parents of all team members prior to the first game or meet of each season. Team members should be asked to sign a sportsmanship pledge, which the IHSAA will provide and schools will keep on file. Sportsmanship posters provided by the IHSAA must be posted in prominent, high-traffic locations within the school and/or school grounds.

4. Every winning school must read a sportsmanship message prior to every home sporting event, providing a public address system is available and in use.

5. A winning school cannot have a coach ejected from a game because of a sportsmanship violation during the school year.

6. A winning school cannot have a player ejected from a game because of a sportsmanship violation during the school year.

7. A winning school cannot have a corroborated report about unsportsmanlike fan behavior filed by a licensed IHSAA official.

8. A winning school cannot be on probation (or suspension) by the IHSAA due to a rules violation.

9. The principal of each school that qualifies for the IHSAA School Sportsmanship Award will be asked to confirm that all of the above criteria have been met prior to the presentation of the award.

“Sportsmanship, quite simply, translates to lessons in citizenship for the 160,000 young men and women who participate in high school sports in Indiana,” said the IHSAA.
