5 Roots of Honoring the Game Establish and Enforce Respect for the following: Rules: Respect for the Rules means honoring the “intent of the rules” not just the letter of the rules. Opponents: Respect for a worthy opponent. You Honor the Game when you recognize that a worthy opponent is a gift that forces you to play to your highest ability. Officials: Respect for the officials – even when you disagree. Professional sports are there for your Entertainment, Youth sports are there for the Education of the players. Teammates: Respect your teammates and never do anything that would embarrass your team. You are a representative of your team both on and off the field. “A team only exists when every member understands how his actions affect every other member.” Self: Self-respect is the bottom line for a high-functioning mature individual. “A person with a strong internal moral compass works hard to avoid doing anything to dishonor the game because it shows disrespect for himself.”
