  •  CONDUCT OF VARSITY ATHLETES 

    George Brown College student athletes who participate in Varsity sports represent the College. Your conduct as a varsity athlete, both on and off the field of play, reflects our College's image and reputation. 

    George Brown College fully supports all aspects of the Ontario Human Rights Code.  Specifically that every person having legal capacity to participate in Varsity sports at the College, has a right to compete on equal terms without discrimination because of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, citizenship, creed, sex, age, marital status, family status or disability."

    As a student athlete, you will receive certain privileges that carry with them responsibilities. 

    a)         Alcohol and Illegal Drugs: College personnel are bound to enforce the "laws of the land" as they relate to the illegal use of alcohol and drugs.

    Alcohol is not allowed in transit to and from games or in accommodation provided for the athletes.

    b)         Social Media: Any discussion or comments made on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, or any blogs or forums that are defamatory or derogative in nature with regards to your team, department, and/or college will automatically result in dismissal from Varsity athletics. It is your responsibility to represent yourself, your team, and school as a positive role model and show utmost professionalism.

    b)         Performance Enhancing Drugs and Banned Substances: Consistent with the policy of the CCAA and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, CCES, athletes will not take performance enhancing drugs or other banned substances as listed by the CCES.  If a banned substance is required for medical purposes, the athlete will inform his/her coach and complete the medical declaration documentation.

    c)         Dress:   As ambassadors of the college, we encourage you, our student athletes to dress "clean and neat".  Coaches will be responsible for establishing and enforcing appropriate code of dress to events, games and tournaments.

    Accommodation:  Athletes should inform the Team Manager or Coaches of any damage to the room upon checking in.  Any damages or thefts that occur in rooms will be the responsibility of those student athletes checked into these respective rooms.  The Team Manager or Coach will check all rooms upon departure. Any additional room charges i.e. telephone, movies or damage charges must be paid by the athlete prior to leaving the hotel.

    Practices:  Attendance and punctuality are mandatory at all team practices.  Should extenuating circumstances (i.e. illness) prevent your attendance at a practice, call and leave a message for your coach or with your Varsity Coordinator as soon as you can.

    Harassment and Discrimination: The college takes any complaint of any form of harassment and discrimination seriously and if you encounter any situation that has a negative impact on you and your environment, please inform your coach, sport coordinator, or the Manager of Athletics and Recreation.
