Athletic Code

Participation in athletics at RAA teaches fair play, sportsmanship, and the understanding and appreciation of teamwork. It teaches that to quit, means failure, but to follow through on a commitment while working hard, brings about rewards.

The conduct of an athlete attending RAA is closely observed by many people. An athlete is a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ, the team, the school and community. It is important, therefore, that an RAA athlete is at all times and in all places, a gentleman or lady.

Athletics is an integral part of the school’s total educational program. All school activities, curricular and extra-
curricular, in the classroom and on the playing field, must be congruent with the school’s stated goals and objectives established for the intellectual, physical, social and moral development of its students. It is within this context that the following Code of Ethics is presented.
