Fundamentals of Sportsmanship - Panther Pride

  1. Gain an understanding and appreciation for the rules of the game. Know the rules. If you are uniformed, refrain from expressing opinions on officials, coaches, or administrative decisions.   

  2. Use Representative behavior at all time. Your behavior influences others whether you are aware of it or not.

  3. Recognize and appreciate skilled performance regardless of affiliation.  Applause for an opponent's good performance  displays generosity and is a courtesy that should be practiced.  This not only represents good sportsmanship, but also reflects a true awareness of the game by recognizing and acknowledging quality.

  4. Exhibit respect for the officials. The officials are trained and perform to the best of their ability.  Mistakes by all those involved in the contest are part of the game.  A rule of good sportsmanship is to accept and abide by decisions from the official.

  5. Exhibit respect for the opponent at all times.  Opponents are guest.  Be a positive representative for your school and team.

  6. Display pride in your actions at every opportunity.  This suggest that you care about yourself and how others perceive you.
