Athletic Code of Conduct

Rowers will act in a mature and responsible manner. Treat your opponents, your teammates and yourself with courtesy and respect. Strive to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat, and have a positive attitude toward training and racing. 

ORU has a zero tolerance for the use of alcohol, tobacco and non-prescribed drugs. Be a positive voice–avoid swearing or making derogatory comments about race, sex, gender, or the physical appearance of others on your team or other teams. Speak up if you hear such comments.

You are a role model to younger children, to your schoolmates and adults. Represent youelf, your sport and your team with honesty, kindness, and enthusiasm. Support your teammates. Celebrate your body, mind and spirit. Most importantly, do your best, and savor the journey.
