Abide by the rules of your sport, respect your opponents, and conduct yourself in such a manner that others will admire your attitude, no matter whether you win or lose.
Sports will challenge you mentally and physically. Learn to give 100% despite difficulties and setbacks. “Never, never, never give up.”
Sport is a journey. Learn to enjoy the practice and preparation as much as you do the end result. With the right outlook, you can enjoy striving to reach your goals and also continue to be involved in your sport throughout your life.
Always show respect for yourself, your teammates, your coaches, and your opponents. Also admire and honor the history and traditions of your sport.
Work together toward a common goal. Put the team ahead of yourself. A single snowflake seems so fragile, but look what they can do when they stick together!
Sport changes lives. Children growing up in active families have better test scores, are more likely to go to college, have higher incomes, and have fewer health issues.
YSA has long recognized that there are barriers to sport participation. We remain committed to working with our partners to introduce students throughout Summit and Wasatch counties to sport and healthy lifestyles to ensure play equity. We are dedicated to taking a fresh look at how we deliver our after-school programs to make our offerings more accessible to more students, and talking to members of our minority community to identify additional factors limiting participation.
