The International One Wheel Association member code of conduct strives to enhance the sport by promoting principles amongst members, as well as all athletes 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. The Code is used as a point of reference when participating at events.
