Sportsmanship_30nd5yft

Sportsmanship. In the dictionary refers as fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing) becoming to one participating in a sport. Having sportsmanship character is what makes sports admirable. showing consideration and respect to your opponent, wither in losing or winning is the most beautiful thing you can see in the playground.  Every time i play sports with my friends or family, We play hard and we show competition on the playground, sometimes we get injured and be mad at each other the whole game time but once the game is over we shake hands and pretend like nothing happen, because at the end it’s just a game and the main purpose of it is to have fun and increase the circle of friendships, my father always used to tell use sports as a gate to make friends.  Sports are not a way to cause fights or harm your other opponent. people pay money and take their families and friends to have good times, and this is what define sports. sports created to connect people not to separate them.

 

Some people define good sportsmanship as the “golden rule” of sports in other words, treating the people you play with and against as you’d like to be treated yourself. You demonstrate good sportsmanship when you show respect for yourself, your teammates, and your opponents, for the coaches on both sides, and for the referees, judges, and other officials.

But sportsmanship isn’t just reserved for the people on the playground. Cheerleaders, fans, and parents also need to be aware of how they behave during competition. Sportsmanship is a style and an attitude, and it can have a positive influence on everyone around you.

  1. I think good sportsmanship is extremely important to have, which I see that you do, too. Good sportsmanship habits get carried on throughout the rest of someone’s life, past youth sports and past competitive sports. Having good sportsmanship teaches you respect, humility, dignity, and how to treat others as you would want to be treated. I think that good sportsmanship should be emphasized by coaches, parents, athletes and refs, however, I do not think there would be any true way to regulate it. In my opinion, if you are going to be involved in sports, you should be a good sport no matter what.

  2. I really like the point you made about sportsmanship being the “golden rule” of sports. I treat my opponents and other people who are a part of the game like I would want to be treated. Another thing you said was that sports should be used as a gateway to friendship. I completely agree, there are so many of my friends that I have made through sports.

  3. Good post. I like how you said no matter what happens in the game, when it’s over you shake hands and everything is ok. If you hate each other or not, you are still blessed to be able to play the game and lucky for getting that opportunity. You shouldn’t be mad after games at your opponents, you’re both just there to play the game. If you lose, oh well. Go back to the practice field and get better.
