Colorado Springs School District 11
Fan Behavior Policy
Colorado Springs School District 11 and the Colorado High School Activities Association are committed to good sportsmanship, safety, and fair play. We believe respect for the opposing team, all coaches, game officials, and each other before, during, and at each contest is of the utmost importance. People participating in acts that conflict with good sportsmanship, safety, and fair play, are subject to ejection from our events and prosecution if appropriate. If you are asked to leave a District 11 contest, further actions will be taken, including suspension from future athletic events. Thank you in advance for making our events enjoyable for all parties. Your cooperation is appreciated, and we hope you enjoy our contests.
Data from the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association and the Colorado High School Activities Association shows that poor fan behavior is the leading cause of the national officials shortage. In Colorado Springs School District 11, we are taking a firm stance regarding poor fan behavior, and we will be a part of the officials shortage solution rather than continue to be a part of the problem.
If a fan and/or spectator is asked to leave a D11 contest by an official, administrator, or staff member for any reason, that fan will be suspended from D11 events for one calendar year, 365 days. If a suspended fan and/or spectator would like to appeal the suspension, they may call 719-520-2690 and set up an appeals meeting with the District’s Director/Assistant Director of Athletics, the building-level athletic director, and the school’s principal.
