Take a look at one of our own LOLHS' Class Act Athletes, Lydia Tinnerello, promoting positive sportsmanship and explaining what it means to be a Class Act School!
WAY TO GO LYDIA!
This segment is expected to air on Fox 61 beginning March 1.
The CIAC’s Class Act Schools initiative is designed to empower schools and particularly students to take ownership for all issues related to sportsmanship within the athletics department. Schools will have the opportunity to opt-in as an official Class Act School. Doing so includes striving to follow an established set of guidelines for behavior at sporting events, and creating a student-led group to monitor and address sportsmanship concerns within the school. The CIAC will serve as the sponsor for the program, which aims to provide a framework enabling schools to promote, encourage, and monitor positive sportsmanship within their departments.
The behavioral guidelines that are part of the Class Act Schools program were developed through collaboration and discussion with students, coaches and athletics directors at previous CIAC Sportsmanship Conferences and are intended to create a consistent framework for acceptable behavior from all athletics stakeholders including participants, coaches, students, and parents. The guidelines for the Class Act School program can be found by clicking on the “Class Act Standards” tab above.
“One of the biggest challenges our membership has expressed to us in trying to promote positive sportsmanship is consistency. Actions that one school might not object to are considered inappropriate at another school,” CAS-CIAC Executive Director Karissa Niehoff stated. “By choosing to be a part of the program a school is defining what is considered acceptable actions within interscholastic athletics, and then challenging its student leaders to address concerns either within their school or with an opponent.”
