(Philadelphia Inquirer) Any player or coach for a high school sports team in the Diocese of Camden who doesn’t “demonstrate appropriate respect” during the national anthem will be subject to a two-game suspension, the diocese said in a note sent to school administrators and coaches earlier this month.
Players and coaches would be subject to dismissal from the team for “subsequent offenses,” the note said. It is dated Sept. 2.
The Camden diocese oversees Catholic high schools such as Camden Catholic, Paul VI, Gloucester Catholic, St. Joseph, Holy Spirit and Wildwood Catholic.
Holy Cross is overseen by the Diocese of Trenton.
