The Booster Club Code of Ethics
 

PREAMBLE
The National Booster Club Training Council asserts that its members play a vital role in insuring the continuation of booster club supported extracurricular programs and as such is responsible for insuring that it conforms to the highest standards of business practice and organizational support.

The National Booster Club Training Council further endorses that the Code of Ethics were established to help define accepted and acceptable booster club behaviors; to help promote high standards of practice; to provide a benchmark for booster club officers and directors to use for self evaluation and to establish a framework for professional behavior and responsibility.

THE BOOSTER CLUB CODE OF ETHICS
In accordance with the ideals set forth in the Preamble, the National Booster Club Training Council herewith sets forth the following as the Booster Club Code of Ethics, and states that violation of any provision hereof by a member may constitute grounds for suspension of membership or expulsion from the Association, the following Code of Ethics are in effect:

It is the duty of all concerned with booster club supported extracurricular programs to:

1. Keep in mind that as a volunteer I realize that I am subject to a code of ethics similar to that which binds the professional in the field in which I place my efforts. Like them, I assume certain responsibilities and expect to account for what I do in terms of what I am expected to achieve.

2. Remember that my attitude toward volunteer work should be professional. I believe that I have an obligation to my work, to those who direct it, to my colleagues, to those for whom it is done, and to the public.

3. Cultivate an awareness that participation in extracurricular activities is part of the total education experience for the participants and to further recognize that the purpose of activities in school programs is to develop and promote physical, mental, moral, social and emotional well-being of the participants.

4. Emphasize sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play as they relate to the lifetime impact on the participants and spectators.

5. Demonstrate leadership, teamwork and commitment to the participants through my actions in working with fellow volunteers.

6. Work within the framework and purpose of my organization as defined by my organization’s by-laws.

7. Strive to create a productive organization that supports the needs of our participants.

8. Create a productive and positive working environment with coaches, leaders and administration.

9. Develop an awareness and understanding of the rules and guidelines governing competition, the school and/or the extracurricular program, and comply with them in all activities.

10. Refrain from making disparaging remarks to officials, coaches, participants or spectators and to exemplify self-control and accept adverse decisions without public display of emotion.

11. Encourage participants within the extracurricular activities I support to develop proper health habits and discourage the use of chemicals.

12. To treat everyone with acceptance and respect, valuing individual and cultural difference, and showing care and concern for others.

13. To hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards for honesty, truthfulness and public service.

14. To provide an open and inviting environment for all.

To these ends, NBCTC members will strive to uphold our responsibilities and obligations to the best of our abilities.
