About

Daegu International School believes that school athletics is an integral component of the complete educational structure. DIS athletics aims to provide opportunities for our student-athletes to have fun, build friendships, and develop sportsmanship skills. Additionally, our athletics programs promote fitness and skill development, and enable our athletes to be competitive within our league.

DIS is a member of SKAC (South Korean Activities Conference). There are nine schools within this league. Each sport competes in at least two tournaments per season.

SKAC Code of Conduct Policy

Statement of Principle and Policy regarding student athlete Sportsmanship and Commitment to sports at Daegu International School:

Commitment and Sportsmanship are essential to excellence in sports. Since practice and game results are measures of athlete/team performance, sportsmanship and commitment to the team are required to ensure team success, representation of oneself, and representation of DIS.

Each participating student athlete, parent, and coach has a responsibility to promote a sports culture that respects and fosters individual and team achievement.

Athlete Expectations

Attendance: Athletes are expected to attend all practices (twice per week) and tournaments (twice per season). Athletes with schedule conflicts due to multiple sports, after school activities, or Korean academies may receive permission from their coach to participate in one practice per week. Athletes are responsible for meeting with the coach at the beginning of the season to organize their practice arrangement.

Unexcused absences: Athletes missing practice or games without sufficient notification to the coach will receive a strike. For practices, sufficient notification is 24 hours; for tournaments, coaches should be notified at the beginning of the season. Athletes will not be excused from practice in order to complete homework or group projects.

Injuries: Injured athletes should attend all practices and games in order to keep current with plays, and to remain on the team. Athletes will be excused for doctors appointments.

Strike policy: Athletes receiving three strikes in a season will be removed from the team. Athletes attending one practice per week will be removed from the team after only two strikes.

Athlete conduct: DIS athletes are expected to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, and respect towards their coaches, teammates, referees, and opposition. Failure to do so will result in a strike.

Uniforms policy: Most team uniforms are owned by DIS. Athletes who fail to return DIS uniforms by the set deadline (usually 1 week) will be fined the cost of the uniform.

Academic expectations: Athletes are expected to earn 70% in all classes. Coaches will check PowerSchool one week prior to a tournament. There must be at least four grades in PowerSchool at the time it is checked, and athletes with missing assignments due to recent school trips will not be penalized. Athletes are responsible for meeting their teachers BEFORE tournaments to discuss and collect all work for that missed day of school.

Permission forms: Permission forms are to be signed by parents and returned to the coach by the date stated on the form. Dorm athletes will have their forms signed by their dorm parent. Athletes who return forms late may not be able to participate in events, and they will earn a strike.
