Beliefs and Objectives

The Commission believes that a controlled activities program is a strong factor in the development of
courage, personality, cooperation, and leadership. The Commission believes that representatives of a school
should be good citizens of that school, hence the need for requirements and regulations governing eligibility
that have been standardized.

The Commission is designed to provide means for the unbiased and amicable settlement of disputes
regarding activities.

The Commission seeks to present proper ideals of sportsmanship so that coaches, players, school authorities,
game officials, and spectators may combine to make any activity enjoyable and productive of physical
and social benefits to both sides involved in the contest, with partisanship and prejudice eliminated as far as
possible.

To accomplish these objectives the Commission asks the cooperation of its members, all lovers of clean,
wholesome activities, and all fans, young and old, who believe in our American system of interscholastics.
