"Today I Give My ALL For Appalachian State" is the foundation for ASU Athletics and the University as a whole. Together, Appalachian administrators and students have developed an initiative to encourage first-class conduct at all Appalachian athletic events.
We all share in the responsibility of promoting good sportsmanship at games and ensuring that past, present and future Mountaineers learn the positive nature of supporting our teams.
The CLASS (Champions Love Appalachian State Spirit) initiative gives us a mechanism to guide all external friends of the University that will lead to a positive and enthusiastic gameday atmosphere. Athletics director Charlie Cobb emphasizes that, “we want everyone to understand their role in creating home field advantage, but more importantly, realizing the responsibility we all share in representing Appalachian State University.”
C - Clean Up After Yosef! Take pride in our beautiful campus and leave it better than when you arrived.
L - Let your actions represent the best of Appalachian State. Alcohol is a privilege during tailgating at ASU, not a right.
A - Always be positive in your support of our team, coaches and players and wear your Black and Gold.
S - Show respect for our visitors and game officials. Cheer loudly, but with appropriate language.
S - Show respect for yourself and fellow Mountaineers – especially young fans.
The main goal of the CLASS program is to promote sportsmanship at all of our events, educate everyone on the benefits of a positive and united message for our student-athletes and to give our all for Appalachian State.
Southern Conference Code of Ethical Conduct at Sporting Events
The Southern Conference and its member institutions are committed to principles of good sportsmanship. We believe that all student-athletes, coaches and spectators should strive to represent the very best spirit and tradition of college athletics. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner at all times. Those in attendance should report any act that goes against this policy to game management or security personnel immediately.
