The 5th/6th grade girls basketball team that I coach had a difficult game this past Saturday. They lost by 20 points. During the game, my team was reporting to me that the girls on the other team were making fun of them on the court. That didn't make me happy, but what happened a few hours after the game really caught my attention. A girl from the opposing team *67'd one of the girls on my team and proceeded to gloat and ridicule my player and our team. I can't say I expected that kind of behavior from a 5th or 6th grade girl....

I'm wondering at this point...should I let this drop, or should I contact this opposing coach and tell him what happened. I do know the opposing coach and never seemed like the kind of guy that would condone this type of behavior.

Any advice?

  Re: Sportsmanship  
Certainly, the behaviour of the opposing players is unacceptable, at any level. Neither coaches or referees should allow such behaviour.

Yes, you should definitely speak to the coach. In addition, what is the policy of the people who govern the league in which you play? If they don't have one, they should develop one.

All the best,
Coach Vic
