Capital University Student-Athlete Code of Conduct

Student-athletes at Capital University are expected to represent themselves, their team and Capital University with honesty, integrity, and character in all situations.  Capital University recognizes the many benefits that are derived as a result of participating on an intercollegiate athletic team.  With those benefits comes a responsibility to be positive and effective members of a team, athletic department, and university.

The actions of one student-athlete can result in a positive or negative generalization to all student-athletes. Student-athletes who do not conform to the code below will be held responsible for their behavior, and may be disciplined by their coach, the athletic director, or other university officials.

Capital University Student-Athletes Will:

  1. Understand that participation on a Capital University athletic team is a privilege, not a right, and will be treated as such.
  2. Be respectful of all others and treat people as they would want to be treated.
  3. Communicate with their teammates, coaches, faculty, and other members of the campus community with honesty and integrity.
  4. Communicate via various online communities in a way that positively represents themselves, their team, and Capital University.  An inexhaustive list of inappropriate behavior concerning participation in online communities includes, but is not limited to the following:
  • Posting photos, videos, comments or posters showing the personal use of alcohol, tobacco, etc.
  • Posting photos, video and comments that are of a sexual nature.
  • Posting pictures, videos, comments or posters that condone drug related activity.
  • Using inappropriate or offensive language in comments, videos and other postings.
  • Cyber bullying or posting negative comments about opponents prior to or after competition.
  • Posting photos wearing Capital University athletics apparel while engaging in inappropriate behavior.  
  1. Refrain from participating in hazing activities.  Depending upon the severity of the offense, if a student athlete is found to have participated in the hazing of another student (whether that student is an athlete or non-athlete), the student athlete can be disciplined up to and including removal from a team and expulsion from the university.
  2. Refrain from the use of all substances that are banned by the NCAA.  Athletes are expected to check with their coaches and/or training staff before using any substances that may be banned.  The list of banned substances can be found at:  http://www.ncaa.com/content/ncaa-banned-drug-list
  3. Abide by all team rules established by coaches.  Failure to abide by team rules will result in disciplinary action. 
  4. Be prepared for classes, participate, and make progress towards a degree.  In order to ensure the student-athlete is making progress towards a degree, he/she must maintain an overall 1.8 GPA as a 1st-year student, and an overall 2.0 GPA as a sophomore, junior, and senior.  Those students who fall below this threshold will be required to meet with their coach and the athletic director to develop a remediation plan.  The plan that is developed may include withholding the student-athlete from practices and competition. 
  5. Agree that failure to conform to the student athlete code of conduct will have consequences that may include, but are not limited to a warning, sanctions with regard to practice/playing time, and/or dismissal from a team.
  6. Agree that they can be removed from a team at the discretion of the head coach during the pre-season, the season, and the post-season.

 

I have read and understand the student athlete code of conduct.  I agree to comply with the rules and understand there will be consequences if I fail to do so.
