Take the Pledge

Take the Pledge

Sports is more than just a form of exciting entertainment or even a great way to exercise. Sports is a fantastic way to build self-esteem and bring together a sense of community that crosses gender, race, age, economic, social, and even religious lines.

There are many important life lessons that can be learned through sports- how to win AND to lose with grace, being a team player, learning from mistakes, civility towards opposing teams, playing by the rules, respecting the decisions made by the officials—to just name a few. Those skills can be translated into the classroom, the board room, and even in handling the every day ups and downs of life.

PLEDGE OF SUPPORT

The Sportsmanship Pledge is an important foundation upon which I will foster and build. I will be an example and show leadership in this pledge whether on or off the field!
