The manner in which your school and community are represented is far more important than whether your team wins or loses the games they play. Good sportsmanship is all about respect – respect for oneself, for teammates and coaches, for opposing players and coaches, for contest officials, and for the game. Inappropriate behavior is easy to identify. One need ask only two questions:1. Is the observed behavior respectful of the targeted audience?2. Does the observed behavior reflect positively on BGHS?If the answer to either question is no, then the behavior is inappropriate and must not be tolerated. Respect for players and coaches of participating teams, game officials and tournament personnel must be a priority at all times and in all situations. Much of the behavior you see televised at college games is inappropriate at ANY level, but most especially at the high school level. The following list, though not inclusive, provides examples of behaviors that are disrespectful and thus unsportsmanlike, but are often witnessed at athletic events:Turning your back or pretending to read a newspaper during player introductions.Not standing attentively or shouting “oh” during the National Anthem.Booing anyone.Taunting or baiting anyone.Singling out an opponent and yelling personal remarks.Mooing, barking, or making other inappropriate gestures or sounds toward anyone.Chanting such things as “over-rated,” or “you, you, you” (after a foul), “warm-up the bus,”etc.Using profanity toward anyone.Using racial, ethnic or other slurs.Throwing things onto the court/field or toward others.The responsibility for good sportsmanship rests with each and every one of us. One person behaving inappropriately can ruin the state tournament experience for many. Cheer for your team, but respect the other team and the game officials. Be a fan, not a fanatic.Remember, good sportsmanship is all about respect. Win with humility; lose with grace; do both with dignity.Athletic Physicals and Forms: Are required for an athlete to participate in open gyms, conditioning, and try-outs.1.
