    - I will practice good sportsmanship.
    - I will act in ways that bring respect to me, my coaches, my team, and Special Olympics.
    - I will not use bad language.
    - I will not swear or insult other persons.
    - I will not fight with athletes, coaches, volunteers, or staff.
    Responsibility for My Actions
    - I will not make inappropriate or unwanted physical, verbal, or sexual advances on others.
    - I will not drink alcohol, smoke, or take illegal drugs while representing Special Olympics at training sessions, competitions, or during games.
    - I will not take drugs for the purpose of improving my performance.
    - I will obey all Special Olympics rules.
