IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-14-16)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
What does the word “sportsmanship” mean to you? If you ask your classmates, I’m sure you would get a variety of answers.
Some student-athletes might view sportsmanship as a handshake after a game. Others may say it’s your attitude during a game. And others may say it’s never getting mad and showing your temper. All would be correct.
I challenge you to think about sportsmanship during the entire school day and during your sporting events as well. Good sportsmanship shouldn’t be a reaction. Instead, make it a habit. Whether it’s being complimentary in the classroom, hallway, or field/court of play, take pride in being a good sport every day!
