Sportsmanship

"In the end, it’s extra effort that separates a winner from second place. But winning takes a lot more than that, too. It starts with complete command of the fundamentals. Then it takes desire, determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice. And finally, it takes a great deal of love, fairness and respect for your fellow man. Put all these together, and even if you don’t win, how can you lose?"

-Jesse Owens

If you want to improve your game and unite your team you need to have good sportsmanship…

Winners Practice Good Sportsmanship

What do Tiger Woods, Eli Manning and Michael Phelps have in common? They all practice good sportsmanship. Having good sportsmanship is as important as knowing the key plays and having the skills to be the best athlete you can be.

Good sportsmanship is when your opponents, teammates, coaches, officials and parents treat each other with respect. Being a good sport means you play the game fair, avoid arguments, respect your teammates and your opponent, follow the rules, listen to your coach, encourage others and accept suggestions to make your game better. Showing good sportsmanship means you can win and not gloat, lose and not complain and treat your teammates and opponent with respect. If you make a mistake, don’t get angry or pout, learn from your mistakes , it will make you a better athlete in the long run.

Here are some additional tips…

  • Be a cheerleader from the sidelines. Yell words of encouragement and be enthusiastic about the game. Applaud when a good play is performed by your teammate.
  • Be positive. Do not talk negatively about your teammate, coach or the referee’s calls. Make sure your actions are aligned with your positive attitude.
  • Do not dwell on a loss. Congratulate your opponent and shake hands before and after the game.
  • Be courteous to others.
  • Remember, it is just a game…have fun!

You will reap the rewards by improving your game and your team will unite if you all practice good sportsmanship.
