Interscholastic athletics provides an opportunity for students to participate in the total educational experience. What you do to succeed in sport reflects what you need to succeed in life. Sport and life are connected because good character matters in both. Sportsmanship, fair play and respect are all components of character. Practicing sportsmanship means practicing an attitude of respect. Respect is given not just for success or failure but for effort, attitude, and how you treat others. After the game is over, how you played the game with dignity will long be remembered as your success as a person.
