Understandably, we are all vigilant regarding what may happen to fall sports. Much more clarity will be needed based upon today's recommendations before any official announcement. As of right now, we plan to begin official practices on 9/4 as communicated earlier this week.
East Pennsboro Area School District believes that the athletics and activities we offer not only provide the students with the opportunity to perform in something they enjoy; the offerings also prepare our students with skills they can utilize toward a productive future. Integrity, fairness, and respect are lifetime values taught through participation and the principles of good sportsmanship. With them, the spirit of competition thrives, fueled by honest rivalry, courteous relations, and graceful acceptance of the results.
A good sport is a true leader within the school and the community. As a member of our school, your sportsmanship goals should include:
- Realizing that athletics and activities are part of the educational experience, and the benefits of involvement go beyond the result;
- Participating in positive cheers that encourage our students; and discouraging any cheer that would redirect that focus;
- Learning, understanding and respecting the rules of the contest; while also respecting the coaches, advisors, and officials who administer them and their decisions;
- Respecting our visitors, and acknowledging them for striving to do their best;
- Developing a sense of dignity under all circumstances.
You are a spokesperson for our school when you attend an athletic, or any co-curricular event. Your actions are viewed by family and friends, opposing fans, the local community, and the media. Your display of good sportsmanship will show the most positive things about you and our school; and hopefully remind us that activity is meant to be fun!
