An Athletic Code of Ethics

By Tony Alfonso, HoopsU, 02/22/18, 12:00PM CST


As an athlete I am determined: To play the game to the limit of my capacities, giving to each detail the greatest care and attention.

This Athletic Code of Ethics appeared in the May, 1922 edition of The Athletic Journal. The Athletic Journal began in 1921 and deemed themselves “A Professional Magazine for Coaches of the Country”.

It is quite interesting to read the code with the different use of language and some dated terminologies, however, it is a very relevant code for your athlete’s and basketball players today.
