SPORTSMANSHIP

Good sportsmanship is when teammates, opponents, coaches and officials treat each other with respect.

Players learn the basics of sportsmanship from the adults in their lives, especially their parents and their coaches. Players who see adults behaving in a sportsmanlike way come to understand that the real winners in sports are those who know how to persevere and to behave with dignity — whether they win or lose a game.
