Official fan behavior policy will appear in student handbooks

By Micah Sperling

For the first time ever, the Sports Council’s new fan behavior regulations will be in the Student-Parent handbook that all Harvard-Westlake students receive at the beginning of the year. Sports Council Chair and science teacher David Hinden says that it is necessary.

“Including these regulations in the Student-Parent handbook is a key part of the Sports Council’s mission,” Hinden said.

Over the past few years, fan behavior at games, especially that of Fanatics, has been one of the things the administration has sought to change. At the Loyola basketball game, for example, several fans wore “Beat Boyola” t-shirts with a picture of two boys holding hands.
