The OSSAA has enacted a new rule (suspension from athletic activities for unsporting behavior rule) in efforts to improve sportsmanship at all athletic events.

Any “egregious” unsportsmanlike behavior by coaches, players, or fans two or times in
the same season/same sport will cause the suspension of that team and/or individual
from the rest of the season.

The OSSAA cited some of the following examples of egregious unsportsmanlike
-Fans constantly verbally attacking officials
-Fans physically attacking officials
-Fans attacking other fans at athletic events
-Coaches physically attacking or berating officials
-Players getting into fights with other players while shaking hands at the end of contests
-Student sections verbally chanting inappropriate or demeaning chants at individuals,
teams or officials.

Hinton Schools, coaches, and players appreciate and love all the support that the
Comet fans have. There is nothing better than a great student section and fans that are
voicing their encouragement for the Comets during the game. We must work together to
make sure we all set a good example in behavior at athletic events. #CometNation
