In the effort to increase the quality of this OAC event, we would ask that you as a coach/parent/fan please read through our expectations on Sportsmanship.

Fundamentals of Sportsmanship

  • Show respect for self and others at all times.
  • Respect the officials. Have the willingness to accept and abide by the decisions of the officials.
  • Have a basic understanding, and appreciate the rules of the contest.
  • Maintain self-control at all times.
  • Recognize and appreciate skill in performance of all participants and tournament staff.
  • Any un-sportsmanlike conduct by a person present at an OAC event may result in a penalty up to and including a one-year ban from any OAC event. If the un-sportsman act is by a coach, parent, family member or anyone connected to a particular athlete the ban could also include the athlete. We will have a zero tolerance for un-sportsmanlike behavior.

Examples of Un-Sportsmanlike Behavior

  • Yelling obscenities at officials, workers, fans, opponents and/or your participant.
  • Abusive behavior directed at officials, workers, fans, opponents and/or your participant.
  • Allowing your participant to throw equipment.

We ask that you hold yourself in the highest standard of sportsmanship. Please set an example for the young men/women whom you coach. Please do not put your participant at risk for disqualification due to your behavior.

Ohio’s Return-to-Play and Lindsay Laws

The State of Ohio has enacted legislation designed to protect student athletes.  These laws require parents of student-athletes to view short training videos, which can be found on the Ohio Department of Health website (odh.ohio.gov).  The OAC believes strongly in the safety of all of its participants.  Parents of our participants must complete these trainings prior to entering their child into any OAC event.
