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.

To contact the Athletic Director, please email Sarah Jolly - srjolly@dis.sc.kr

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 practices without sufficient notification to the coach will receive a strike. For practices, sufficient notification is 24 hours. Athletes will not be excused from practice in order to complete homework or group projects. All team members are expected to attend both SKAC tournaments and any friendly games that may be added throughout the season. High school students that miss either of the two SKAC tournaments or friendly games may be in jeopardy of losing the credit on their transcript. If unforeseen circumstances arise and students cannot attend a team event, a parent must contact the coach or the Athletic Director prior to the event. Any student missing either of the two events without sufficient reason may be prevented from joining teams in the future. Disputes will be reviewed by the administration and Athletic Director.

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.

Smoking, drugs, and alcohol: Athletes choosing to smoke, take drugs, or drink alcohol will be reviewed under the Disciplinary Committee. In addition to a school consequence, sports privileges may be revoked.

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.

Athletes are expected to have a grade of 70% in all classes when a minimum of 4 grades are entered in the teachers’ gradebooks. This excludes students who are currently completing work based on DIS’ make-up work policy. Coaches will check PowerSchool one week prior to a tournament.

Athletes are responsible for meeting their teachers BEFORE tournaments to discuss and collect all work for that missed day of school.

If a student is suspended from school or receives other disciplinary consequences at DIS, the administration and/or ADC may decide to limit student participation in athletic events.

The Athletic Code of Conduct permission forms will be emailed to all parents via Google Forms at the beginning of each sporting season. The form will require a digital signature to show that every parent and student are in agreement. Athletes who submit digital permission forms late will earn a strike and may not be able to participate in events..
