For Our Fans & Pet Policy

Fans, we truly appreciate your assistance in creating a positive and safe environment for student-athletes, fans, officials and College staff at Saint Michael's sporting events. Here are some tips and guidelines we ask you to follow as you cheer on your Purple Knights.

Pet Policy
We remind you that pets are not permitted at the Saint Michael's Athletics fields nor at the indoor facilities. If you have a question, a special need or a concern regarding the policy, please contact Coordinator of Athletic Facilities Ann Dwyer at adwyer@smcvt.edu.

Spectator Code of Conduct
Saint Michael’s College, the Northeast-10 Conference, the ECAC East, and the NCAA promote good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and spectators. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner. Profanity, racial or sexist comments, or other intimidating actions directed at officials, student-athletes, coaches, or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the venues. Also, consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages or tobacco products is prohibited. Please note that gum is not permitted on Duffy Field.

For the safety and enjoyment of the intercollegiate contests played in the Doc Jacobs Field Complex, we ask that spectators refrain from bringing athletics equipment and balls of any kinds into the facility. We would like to protect the safety of all within the complex and not detract from the contests being conducted. Please remember that spectators are not permitted on the playing fields before, during or at the conclusion of contests, and that alcohol, tobacco and pets are not allowed within the fence that borders the Doc Jacobs Field Complex.

Sporting Behavior
We greatly appreciate your support of our teams. Your passion reflects our commitment to Purple Knight Athletic excellence. Just as we represent Saint Michael's in every competition, you represent us and the Saint Michael's community, too. As athletes, we are expected to compete, win or lose, with dignity and sportsmanship. The same is expected of you, our cherished fans. Bring your friends, your energy, and your zeal, but leave the boorish behavior behind. A few guidelines:

SUPPORT YOUR TEAM IN A POSITIVE MANNER:

  • Cheer the effort
  • Cheer the teamwork
  • Cheer the hustle

PLEASE DO NOT:

  • Single out athletes from visiting teams at any time for any reason
  • Make sarcastic, rude, or derogatory remarks to or about the visiting team or referees
  • Use foul language
  • Enter the playing surface at any time
