Sportsmanship with youth carries a spirit that we all can restore with focus and effort. SCORE is a 5-part series exploring our individual roles instilling healthy sportsmanship and a working plan to do so. We are looking to develop a spirit in sport where victory is not measured in the stands and on the benches; where children, teens and adults can celebrate victory or defeat with style, grace, and sportsmanship; developing character for success in life. This first book in the series is for parents and other important adults in the lives of youth. Sports create opportunities to respect and encourage. What role will you play in improving the sportsmanship environment surrounding youth sports? When sportsmanship prevails - we all SCORE, with healthy youth developing confidence and skills for a good life.
