Removal from Contest and Storming the Court/Field
As we continue to progress through our winter athletic contests and towards district play, Sportsmanship and Competition with Honor will remain important factors in all of our member schools’ athletic programs. We want to remind you that the TAPPS Executive Board unanimously approved to increase the penalties in the cases of a coach, athlete or fan being removed from an athletic contest. In addition, the Board agreed to address the issue of fans rushing the field, court or pitch. The following changes and additions are in place for the 2023-24 school year:
In addition to a required meeting by the coaches and AD with TAPPS, the AD will receive a public reprimand and probation.
With these thoughts in mind, the TAPPS Office has created a brief video that we encourage you to review and to share with all of your stakeholders.
Please join TAPPS in our 2023-24 commitment to Competition with Honor.
If questions arise, please contact the TAPPS office at 254-947-9268 or by email at [email protected].
