Sportsmanship PROMOTION

 NYSPHSAA Sportsmanship Matters Brochure

 
The Sportsmanship Promotion Survey is designed to assess how schools are promoting positive sportsmanship within their athletic departments. This survey is a tool that can be used by athletic administrators to examine policies and procedures and that can be used to promote positive sportsmanship. The responses range from no policies/procedures/programs at the school (1), to exemplary policies/procedures/programs (5), with (3) being average policies/procedures/programs. The award is presented to schools which have developed proactive approaches in keeping sportsmanship in the forefront with their students, coaches, spectators, and communities.
ALL SCHOOLS THAT COMPLETE THE SURVEY WILL RECEIVE A SPORTSMANSHIP CERTIFICATE. THE SPORTSMANSHIP COMMITTEE WILL THEN CHOOSE SCHOOLS FROM EACH SECTION TO RECEIVE A PLAQUE. THOSE APPLICATIONS WILL THEN BE EVALUATED TO DETERMINE A SPORTSMANSHIP PROMOTION BANNER AWARD WINNER!  Deserving schools will be recognized by the NYSPHSAA and honored at the NYSPHSAA Central Committee Meeting.

STAY IN THE game

The NYSPHSAA and Spectrum Sports "Stay in the Game" Sportsmanship Program was launched in the 2013-2014 school year.

Objective:       To recognize schools that complete the entire school year without a disqualification penalty, for unsportsmanlike conduct, for a coach and/or player at all levels of competition.

Recognition:    Each school that meets the objective will receive a decal recognizing the year of accomplishment.

Ceremony:      Each school that meets the objective will be listed in the program at the annual summer meeting recognition dinner.  The Section with the highest percentage of schools that meet the objective will be presented a trophy at the annual summer meeting to display in the section office for a period of one year.

Partnership:  The NYSPHSAA and Spectrum Sports are proud to be able to provide this wonderful recognition program to our member schools.  Sportsmanship is considered the foundation of a strong and healthy interscholastic athletic program.  Promotion of positive sportsmanship is the goal of all interscholastic athletic programs and can only be obtained by administrators, coaches, students, officials, parents, and spectators working together to foster healthy interscholastic experience.
