Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize (1 Corinthians 9:24-25)

- I will behave in a Christ-like manner while involved with WAHAA activities.
- I will demonstrate respect to coaches, teammates, fans, opposing teams, and officials.
- I will keep my commitment to the team and attend all practices/games. (If I have to miss, I will contact the coach with a valid reason.)
- If I have a concern or conflict that needs resolution, I will ask for an appropriate time to talk to the coach (not before/during/immediately after a game). If the matter is not resolved, I will request a meeting with the coach and athletic director. I will not spread my personal concern or conflict among other team members.
- I will not use profanity or offensive, demeaning speech during practices, games, or anywhere I represent WAHAA.
