Mission: The Noble and Greenough Athletic Program supports the School's community principles of honesty and respect for self and others while working to realize individual and group potential. Excellence in athletics depends upon sportsmanship, hard work, self-discipline, humility, pride, and commitment to the team experience. The Nobles Athletic Program attempts to instill in each student an awareness of and appreciation for the importance of lifetime health and wellness and to involve the full community as both participants and supporters of the Athletic Program. Nobles remains committed to placing the good of the team and the School above individual achievement. To reach these goals, Nobles is committed to the teacher/coach model and to a program which is developmentally appropriate to the range of abilities and experiences of the student body.
ISL Sportsmanship Creed: The ISL is proud of the behavior and sportsmanship displayed by its players, coaches, and fans. We value spirited and fair play as well as positive support for our players and teams. In order to ensure that our expected level of decorum continues each season and each game, we ask that all members of the ISL community continually renew their efforts to abide by the ideals of our league.
Players and Coaches: Players and coaches shall at all times represent themselves and their school with honor, proper conduct, and good sportsmanship. They shall understand that competitive rivalries are encouraged but that disrespect for opponents is unsportsmanlike and lessens the value of the rivalries. They shall confine the competitiveness of the game to the field, and in particular behave properly on the sidelines and in the locker rooms both before and after games. Players and coaches shall comply fully with the rulings of the officials. In no way, either by voice, action, or gesture, shall they demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the decisions made. They must never forget that they represent their school.
Spectators: ISL schools will not tolerate at their contest any spectator, either student or adult, whose behavior is disrespectful toward players, officials, coaches, or other spectators. Nor will ISL schools permit any type of spectator behavior that either detracts from the proper conduct of the game or disadvantages a player or team.
