The International One Wheel Association athlete code of conduct strives to enhance the sport by promoting principles amongst athletes, as well as all members or volunteers participating with the IOWA. It is a formal statement of the values and ethical standards that guide individuals in sport. It is a set of principles to which athletes can be held accountable.
