Code of Conduct​

We expect the following behavior and ethical standards at all REC Foundation-sanctioned events:

       • Act with integrity, honesty, and reliability

       • Behave in a respectful and professional manner with event staff, volunteers, and fellow competitors

       • Exhibit maturity and class when dealing with difficult and stressful situations

       • Respect individual differences

       • Follow all rules as listed in the current game manual(s)

       • Student-centered teams with limited adult assistance

       • Safety as a top priority

       • Good sportsmanship, which includes supporting your alliance partners

These expectations apply to all team members and all adults associated with a team including, but not limited to, teachers, mentors and parents. This Code may also apply to behavior outside of REC Foundation-sanctioned events where inappropriate actions are related to an event or participating individuals.

Repeated or egregious violations of the expectations in this Code may result in consequences up to the disqualification of the team or organization from the current event and/or future events, and potentially removal from the program after review by the REC Foundation.

Teams that have not checked in and completed inspection 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run. Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped.


  1. Please supervise all team members; we are guests of Aliamanu Middle School.  Teams are restricted to the Event area. 

  2. No food or drinks inside the building. Capped water bottles are ok. Please eat food outside of cafeteria.

  3. There should be no running in the pit or tournament areas.  Please be careful about creating tripping hazards with packing crates

  5. Bring your own power strip and extension cord.

  6. Please do not bring your own game set and/or field unless you were requested/confirmed to do so.
