"The ideal of sportsmanship permeates virtually every aspect of our culture. The ethic of fair play and respect of an opponent is fundamental. Athletics as we know it are a training ground for good citizenship and high behavioral standards. Vernon Township High School, the N.J.A.C. and the N.J.S.I.A.A. are all committed to fair play, graciousness toward an opponent, and a genuine concern and respect for others. Please welcome those who attend athletic events at Vernon Township High School. Your positive support of all athletes is appreciated and encouraged at all athletic events."
