The Brewster Central School District ("District") believes that involvement in extracurricular activities, which includes interscholastic athletics, is an important part of the development of a well-rounded individual and student, and should be encouraged. However, participation in extracurricular activities such as interscholastic sports is a privilege and not a right. The purpose of this Code of Ethics for Athletes is to ensure that as a condition of extending the privilege, any student who represents the District in interscholastic competition demonstrates at all times the characteristics of a good citizen of both the school and the community. In an effort to inform you of what is expected of your son or daughter in our athletic program, we have written, the herein, Code of Ethics for Athletes. Please read and discuss this Code with your child prior to granting your child permission to participate.
