NJSIAA Pre-game Requirement

The following is an excerpt from an NJSIAA document entitled, "Dealing With Bias Incidents."  For full text click on the title of this article and you will be hyperlinked to the NJSIAA site.  The text appearing in bold face below must be read to team captains and coaches before all high school contests (Varsity, JV, Freshman) in all sports. THIS PROCEDURE IS STILL IN EFFECT PER LARRY WHITE OF NJSIAA.   (UPDATED, 8/26/2015)


On June 5, 2013, the NJSIAA entered an agreement with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General. The agreement called for the NJSIAA and the Attorney General’s Office to join forces to help eliminate unsportsmanlike bias incidents from high school sports.


 The NJSIAA is amending its Sportsmanship Rule to make it clear that the principles of good sportsmanship are violated by “any person (athletic department, staff member, student-athlete, or a fan or spectator associated with a member school) who engages in harassing, verbal, or physical conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion at an interscholastic events.”


In addition, the NJSIAA Bylaws will require the Executive Director to forward to the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights any reported violation of the Sportsmanship Rule resulting from harassing, verbal, or physical contact relating race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion at an interscholastic event.


An official must always use his or her discretion when determining whether to disqualify a player or a coach. That discretion is based on the official’s training and experience, as well as the game conditions and the overriding importance of maintaining player safety. If an official decides that the unsportsmanlike conduct crosses the line and merits disqualification, no warnings need to be given and the official’s decision is final.


At the beginning of every interscholastic athletic contest the game official will read a statement to the team captain that says: “There will be no tolerance for negative statements or actions between opposing players or coaches. This includes taunting, baiting, berating opponents or ‘trash talking’ or actions which ridicule or cause embarrassment to them. It also includes harassing conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion. If such comments are heard, a penalty will be assessed immediately. We have been instructed not to issue warnings. It is your responsibility to remind your team of this policy.”
