     The MPSSAA is pleased to announce that the NFHS has  recently highlighted our "Respect The Game" sportsmanship initiative online and in their print publication "High School Today".  Select the links below to view the complete article and to access the "Respect The Game" resources on our website.

     The ultimate indicator of the value of school athletic programs must be the level of citizenship displayed by those who participate.  Hence, teaching and exhibiting good sportsmanship is the fundamental objective of our program.  This is a great time of the year for every athletic program to take stock of what grade they would give themselves on each of the components of good sportsmanship.

     The "Respect The Game" initiative offers a few key points as a reminder that everyone has a role to play in educationally-related athletics.  The MPSSAA invites you to use the resources available in the link above in your efforts towards promoting good citizenship through sportsmanship.  There can be no greater objective for us all!
