The Importance of Good Sportsmanship

Good sportsmanship is the attitude and behavior that exemplifies positive support for the athlete in all athletic, activity programs/clubs of Saint Mary’s Catholic School, as well as for the individuals who participate.  People involved in all facets of athletic, club and activity programs are expected to demonstrate respect for others and display good sportsmanship. It is essential that student-participants, coaches, parents, student groups and fans in general are constantly reminded that Good Sports Are Winners!  Positive experiences do not occur by chance, rather they are a result of the educational structure, the right perspective, the right leadership, and the true understanding of sportsmanship. It is not merely a campaign; it is the essence of what educational athletics, clubs, and activities are.

Athlete’s Pledge

As a student-athlete, I pledge;  I will do my best to represent my team, my teammates, and myself while striving to have the Integrity to know and do what is right; Respect my opponent, the officials, my teammates, my coach, myself and the game; take Responsibility by embracing opportunities to contribute; exemplify Sportsmanship by bringing my best to all competition; and provide Servant Leadership where I serve the common good while striving to be a personal and team leader.

Coaches’ Pledge

As a coach/Leader, I acknowledge that I am a role model. I know that the principles of good sportsmanship are integrity, fairness, and respect. While teaching the skills of the game or activity, I must also teach students how to win and lose graciously, and that sports, clubs and activities are meant to be educational and fun. I know the behavior expectations of me by this school, and hereby accept my responsibility to be a model of ethical behavior, integrity, and servant Leadership.

Student Athlete Parent’s Pledge

As a parent, I acknowledge that I am a role model. I will remember that school athletics, clubs and activities are an extension of the classroom, offering learning experiences for the students. I must show respect for all students, coaches, spectators, and support groups. I will participate in cheers that support, encourage, and uplift the teams involved. I understand the spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship expected by our school. I hereby accept my responsibility to be a model of good sportsmanship that comes with being the parent of a student athlete.
