- Play for the fun of it, not to please parents or coaches.

- Never argue with or complain about the referee’s calls or decisions.

- Be a good sport by cheering all good plays, whether they are from your team or your opponent’s.
- Respect and treat all players the way you would like to be treated.
- Give your best cooperation to your teammates, coaches, opponents and the referee.
Sportsmanship is the moral behavior in sport.
There is more to sportsmanship than simply being nice. To be a good sport you also have to be pro-active when situations arise. Sportsmanship is not something you are born with and it doesn’t just happen. It is up to you to be a leader, to make it happen on and off the field.
