Our Commonly Held Core Virtues
The League's stakeholders (student-athletes, coaches, parents, faculty, administration, trustees) should know, value, and act upon our core virtues of respect, trust, humility, and balance.
By respect we mean: that we will play within both the letter and the spirit of the rules; that we will treat all people involved in a contest (players, coaches, officials) with the same degree of respect which we would want to be treated; that we will respect the unique nature and mission of each member school.
By trust we mean: that we will trust that each member school and its constituents will abide by agreed upon policies and practices.
By humility we mean: that we will be gracious in victory and defeat, acknowledging the efforts of a worthy opponent.
By balance we mean: that we will work toward the development of the whole person, (physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual).
