Athlete Code of Conduct

UBC TSC Code of Conduct

UBC TSC Code of Conduct
  • Student-Athlete Code of Conduct
  • As a University of British Columbia Sport Club student-athlete, my personal conduct reflects upon the sport I play, my team-mates, opponents, coaches, university, supporters and myself. To be a UBC TSC student-athlete at the University of British Columbia is to accept and adopt the concepts of fair play, respect, dignity, enjoyment, and honour in all aspects of my participation. As a student-athlete, I recognize that I am a UBC student focused on academic success first and an athlete, second.

    I will conduct myself in a manner in which my behaviour will not be considered a form of harassment, including comments and/or conduct which is insulting, intimidating, hurtful, malicious, degrading or otherwise offensive to an individual or group of individuals, or which creates an uncomfortable environment. As such, I agree to respect my fellow team mates by adhering to and upholding the prohibition of any form of hazing or initation.

    As a student athlete, I am a representative of the University and as such, I am expected to conduct myself at all times in an appropriate manner. Poor conduct and other such inappropriate behaviour reflects poorly upon the Department of Athletics and Recreation and the University.

    I will refrain from the use of alcohol or illegal drugs during competition, during practice, in accommodations provided for my team on overnight trips, and while travelling to and from competition. At all other times, I will ensure the responsible use of alcohol and refrain from the use of illegal drugs.

    I am aware of the Department of Athletics and Recreation's zero tolerance on disrespect towards officials and as an athlete it is my responsibility to respect the officials that officiate at all events, tournaments or games.

    In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that my behaviour and conduct are exemplary while occupying accommodations while representing the Department of Athletics and Recreation. I am aware that I am personally responsible for any damages or charges that are assessed to the room in which I have been assigned.

    Finally, I am aware that UBC is unequivocally opposed to the use by student-athletes of any banned or restricted substances or methods in contravention of the rules of the national and/or international sport federations, the International Olympic Committee or Fédération International du Sport Universitaire. I am also aware that UBC is equally opposed to any encouragement of the use of such substances and methods by individuals in positions of leadership in amateur sport (i.e. coaches, medical practitioners, sport scientists, administrators, team managers, etc.) or by the student-athletes themselves. By signing below, I confirm that I will comply with the above Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and that I have had an adequate opportunity to read and understand it, have had an opportunity to ask questions about it, and any questions I have had have been answered to my satisfaction.
