Spectator Expectations:

Remember that you are at a contest to support and yell encouragingly for your team, while enjoying the competition, not to intimidate or ridicule the officials, coaches, or the other team. A ticket is a privilege to observe the contest not a right. Be a positive role model through your own actions and by censoring those around you whose behavior is unbecoming. Be aware that spectators can be removed from the premises and be prohibited from attending future contests during the year due to undesirable behavior. Keep in mind that you are a guest of the school, and while winning is our goal, it is hollow if it comes at the expense of morals, ethics, and common sense. The school is responsible for spectator behavior and can be punished for patrons in violation of the UIL standards and rules.

POST Season for A teams: 10/07, 10/14, TBD
