Step 1: Know the rules To play by the rules, you must first know the rules. Lay down ground rules with your friends or study the rule book of a league you are in. Step 2: Try If you're participating, show some effort. Play to the best of your ability, even if you're not very good at the sport. The fun can be easily drained from any athletic event when someone isn't trying. Step 3: Be respectful Be respectful of your competitors, teammates, and officials. If you think an official should reconsider a call, discuss it with them respectfully instead of screaming at them. Tip Don't fight back if an opponent or even a teammate starts a fight with you. Step 4: Be nice Applaud good plays or calls and let the bad ones go. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Step 5: Be a gracious winner Be gracious if you win. This means not parading around and declaring yourself better than the loser. Tip Be a gracious loser, as well. You can still treat the winner with respect rather than pout or say that the game was unfair. Step 6: Shake hands Shake hands with the opponents and congratulate them on a game well played. If everyone follows these basic sportsmanship rules, then the game will be a great experience for everyone. Did You Know?
