Sportsmanship Starts Outside of Sports

WHEN ADULTS TALK ABOUT HOW TO MODEL AND TEACH SPORTSMANSHIP, WE OFTEN COMPARTMENTALIZE THE DISCUSSION TO SPORT.

 

WHEN YOU TAKE A STEP BACK, HOWEVER, SPORTSMANSHIP IS A GOOD BEHAVIOR AND COMMUNICATION IN ANY CONTEXT.  RAISING A GOOD SPORT ON THE FIELD STARTS BY SHOWING KIDS WHAT BEING A GOOD SPORT LOOKS LIKE OFF OF IT.

TrueSport is a community-based movement that champions the positive life lessons learned through sport.

 

TrueSport aims to give youth athletes the skills necessary to succeed in both sport and life. 

We want sports to reinforce values like fair play and respect for others, but know the reality can be an overemphasis on competitiveness and winning. 
 
To help combat this, teaching those lessons requires the help of you—the parents, coaches, and other influencers in a child’s growth. Check out our TEACH section to join the movement and teach lessons from our TrueSport experts and guides about how to inspire future generations to excellence through sport participation.
 
You will also find a knowledge base of articles and videos from experts to help you make youth sport fun again for everyone involved by heading to our LEARN section.
