PIAA Sportsmanship Message
"PIAA requires all registered sports' officials to enforce the sportsmanship rules for coaches and contestants. Actions meant to demean opposing players, team, spectators and officials are not in the highest ideals of interscholastic education and will not be tolerated. Let today's contest reflect mutual respect. Coaches please certify to the umpire that your players are legally equipped and uniformed according to NFHS rules. Good luck in today's contest."
The Fundamentals of SPORTSMANSHIP TOP 'TEN' REASONS TO DISPLAY POSITIVE SPORTSMANSHIP!
GAIN AN UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATION FOR THE RULES OF THE CONTEST
Know the rules. If you are uninformed, refrain from expressing opinions on officials, coaches, or administrative decision.

RECOGNIZE AND APPRECIATE SKILLED PERFORMANCES REGARDLESS OF AFFILIATION
Applause for an opponent's good performance displays generosity and is a courtesy that should be regularly practiced. This not only represents GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP, but reflects a true awareness of the game by recognizing and acknowledging quality.

DISPLAY OPENLY A RESPECT FOR THE OPPONENT AT ALL TIMES
Opponents are guests and should be treated cordially, provided with the best accommodations, and accorded tolerance at all times. Be a positive representative for your school, team, or family.

EXHIBIT RESPECT FOR THE OFFICIALS
The officials of any contest are impartial arbitrators who are trained and who perform to the best of their ability. Mistakes by all those involved in the contests are part of the game. We should not rationalize our own poor or unsuccessful performance or behavior by placing responsibility on an official. The rule of GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP is to accept and abide by the decision made. This value is critical for students to learn for later application in life.

EXERCISE REPRESENTATIVE BEHAVIOR AT ALL TIMES
Your behavior influences others whether you are aware of it or not.

DISPLAY PRIDE IN YOUR ACTIONS AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY
Never allow your ego to interfere with good judgement and your responsibility as a school representative. Regardless of whether you are an adult, student, player, coach, or official, this value is paramount since it suggests that you care about yourself and how other perceive you.

SPORT A WINNING ATTITUDE!
10. Because taunting, trash talk and poor behavior have no place in school sports.

9. Your admission is to watch the performances of highly impressionable teen-aged kids - not to abuse coaches, officials, players and other spectators.

8. You want others to treat you the way you want to be treated - and how many of us want to be treated with disrespect?

7. We need more positive role models for our kids.

6. People don't always remember the final score - but they always remember the fan who made a fool out of him or herself.

5. Because coaches and officials are also teachers, why would you harass them in their classroom?

4. A national survey indicates kids play school sports to have fun - not to be number one!

3. It's how you play the game that counts.

2. It's simply the right thing to do.

1. BECAUSE SPORTSMANSHIP BEGINS WITH YOU!
