RCS Sports Honor Code

In order to build a quality program that glorifies God, the RCS sports program requires commitment in the following areas:

  1. Practice: The athlete is required to attend every practice, on time and dressed out.
  2. Games: The athlete is required to attend all games on time.
  3. Grades: The athlete is required to comply with CHSAA and RCS policies concerning eligibility.
  4. Character: The athlete is required to adhere to Christian principles of behavior and attitude, understanding that they are a representative of his or her Lord, family, team, and school.
  5. Cooperation: The athlete is required to personally contact the coach if he or she will be late, will miss practice or must leave school. All reasons are not necessarily excused. No call to the coach is an unexcused absence. If not excused, the athlete is expected to make up missed conditioning and possible extra work, as decided by the coach. This cooperation indicates the team’s priority to the athlete and enables the coach to make adjustments necessitated by the athlete’s absence.
  6. Attitude: The athlete is required to do his or her part to put the team first. The student’s comments about the coach and team will be positive and uplifting.
  7. Prayer: The athlete is required to commit to pray for his or her coaches, team members, and opponents.
