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 field. 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.
Welcome Soccer Fans
We, the players would like you to know a few things:
We are watching and hearing everything you say and do today.
Kids are #1. Please display a good example of game day behavior.
Be a fan….not a fanatic!!!!!!!
Players Play. Coaches Coach. Referees maintain integrity throughout the play.
Soccer fans are present to enjoy and support the competition between all teams.
Cheering and encouragement MUST be done in a positive manner.
In the event you cannot abide by these simple guidelines please save yourself, and those around you, the embarrassment of being escorted off the premises.
We, are representatives of East Central Soccer and The Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association would like to thank each of you for making this event a S.A.F.E. and rewarding experience for all.
