The first thing the National Alliance for Youth Sports administrators do when meeting with other administrators is to discuss all the positive expectations that parents have when signing their children up. Invariably, one of the first traits is sportsmanship. The definition of sportsmanship is "fair and generous behavior – mostly relating to sports contests." It is basically the golden rule applied to sports. And I cannot think of a better result of participating in sports for children.
But it doesn’t just happen, does it?
A coach, and by extension an administrator, can be the ultimate factor in whether participants will learn to play with fair and generous intentions.Sportsmanship Values Competition
