We hope youth in our sports program develop a lifelong love of play and exercise, gain new skills, and learn respect… respect for fair play, boundaries, for one’s opponent, one’s self, coaches, referees and fans.

In the heat of a contest, we hope players and fans will remember to value the other team and the officials. You wouldn’t have a game without them, and one day if you are lucky enough you will probably call all of them your friends.

The best sportsmanship recognizes and applauds the effort and the exertion, not the win. It focuses on your own part and maintains your dignity. Perhaps the best sportsmanship is a genuine smile and “Congratulations, well played.”
