Big picture


As the winter sports season gets rolling, please keep in mind the importance of good sportsmanship and representing our school community with pride and integrity. The following are some guidelines for good sportsmanship:

sportsmanship (n.) the practice of playing fair, of taking loss or defeat without complaint or victory without gloating, and treating opponents with fairness, generosity, courtesy, etc.

Sportsmanship is a demonstration of generosity and genuine concern for others. It is a concrete measure of the understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior, and integrity.

Sportsmanship is a blending of cheers for "your team" and applause for the "opponents,"

observing the letter and spirit of the rules, and showing consideration for others.

Sportsmanship is the "golden rule" of athletics treating others as you wish to be treated

For a coach, sportsmanship may be accepting a "questionable" call without protest.

For an athlete, it may be extending a helping hand to an opponent who is down.

For a general spectator, it may be cheering for their team when it loses and applauding the opponent when it wins.

For parents, it may be avoiding living their lives through their children’s sporting activities.

For an official, it may be showing restraint when verbally assaulted by coaches, athletes, and spectators.

Sportsmanship encompasses all that is good in human nature.

Sportsmanship is citizenship in action.
