MSHSL MINIMAL BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS FOR REGULAR AND POST-SEASON
Respect the American flag and the National Anthem.
Spectators must wear clothing that covers the entire torso.
Those who do not comply or who wear clothing that is vulgar, obscene or that in some other way inappropriate, as determined by school/tournament personnel, will be removed from the arena/stadium if they do not cooperate with this behavior expectation. The use of appropriate language is expected at all times. Profanity, negative chants, booing, trash talk, name calling, personal attacks or other acts of disrespect are
unacceptable and must be immediately addressed by school and/or tournament administrators.
Respect the game/contest. Under no condition shall anyone other than the members of the official squad enter the playing surface. No one may interfere with the contest
in any way. Hand held signs, which do not obstruct the view of others, will be permitted provided they are in good taste. Signs, message boards, “white” boards or other similar items
contest/tournament officials deem to be in poor taste will be removed.
Signs on sticks, balloons, or any other type of artificial, celebratory items are not
permitted. Artificial noise makers (i.e. megaphones, cowbells, sirens, whistles, thunder sticks, and other similar items) are not allowed. Laser lights are strictly prohibited.
THANK YOU for supporting your student athletes and fine arts participants and for providing a
