SWC & NFHS Spectator Expectations

We are all excited to have our fall sports season in full swing!

We want to be sure that all community members understand what the expectations are for all spectators, including students.

The SWC and New Fairfield High School encourage and expect good sportsmanship, a family friendly environment, positive fan support, and positive fan interaction. These expectations extend to all areas of the school campus and facilities before, during, and after athletic contests.

The SWC and New Fairfield High School do not condone and will not tolerate:

  • Inappropriate Behavior
    • Including but not limited to: profane language and gestures; targeting or taunting of players (including calling out names and numbers), coaches, officials, and game personnel; physical violence and spitting
  • Disruptions to the Game
    • Including but not limited to: fans approaching or storming the playing surface; throwing objects onto the field/court; destruction of property
  • Disrespecting Officials
  • Intoxicated Fans

Prohibited Items include: open containers at entry; baby powder and similar substances; noisemakers such as bells, whistles, air horns and megaphones; costumes that completely cover faces (medical-type masks for those who wish to wear them are permitted).

No re-entry is permitted at sporting events.

Remember that attending sporting events is a privilege, not a right. Fans who display unacceptable behaviors or violations of the rules will be subject to sanctions including refusal of admittance, removal, and possible arrest. Students in attendance must still abide by the NFHS Code of Conduct, and will be subject to school consequences including exclusion from future events if they violate school or league rules.

All New Fairfield High School students in grades 9-12 are able to attend the game. Students in grade 8 and below must be accompanied by a responsible adult other than a high school student.

We thank you for your cooperation in creating a safe and fun atmosphere at our athletic events during the school year.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. GO REBELS!
