PSD Ejection Policy for Spectators

Any spectator affiliated with PSD schools that is ejected or removed from an athletic venue due to poor sportsmanship will be placed on probation and not allowed to return to further PSD athletic events until the following have occurred:

  1. The individual meets with the building administration to discuss future expectations for behavior.
  2. The individual completes an approved NFHS Sportsmanship course.  The course is free and is available online.  A certificate of completion must be presented to the District Athletic Director as proof of meeting this requirement.

Repeated minor offenses or egregious acts of unsportsmanlike conduct including contact with an official, coach, staff member, opposing team members, throwing items onto court or floor, etc. will be grounds for law enforcement involvement and may be grounds for spectator to be permanently banned from all future PSD contests.
