Athletes Helping Athletes hits the road!

January 9, 2024

Smithtown East Athletes Helping Athletes members attended a Sportsmanship and Civility Leadership Conference this week at Adelphi University.

The purpose was to address the issues of sportsmanship and civility. The students discussed  the importance of civility, and how these behaviors relate to sportsmanship on the field.

The students were asked to discuss and highlight the positive choices they make in relation to sportsmanship and civility. 

Sportsmanship examples included:

  1. Committing to the rules of the game

  2. Respecting coaches, teammates, officials, opponents and spectators 

  3. Respecting others

  4. Combating negative behaviors, such as bullying and hazing
