NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

One of the NJCAA’s basic principles is that athletic competition fosters mutual respect for opponents, coaches, fans, administrators, game personnel and officials. The NJCAA is the only national association in college athletics that enforces a sportsmanship code across all sports.

Adopted in 2004, the NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules provide clear distinction to specific behaviors and actions that will not be tolerated.

Assignors responsible for scheduling officials for NJCAA contests are expected to know and enforce the NJCAA Sportsmanship Code above all other sport-specific rules. Officials contracted to work NJCAA regular season or post-season competition are also expected to understand, enforce and apply the policies set forth in the NJCAA Sportsmanship Rules.


Questions regarding the NJCAA Sportsmanship Policy can be directed to NJCAA Chief Operations Officer Brian Beck at bbeck@njcaa.org
