OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr.' Laura Sivadge Preschool-lst Grade Principal and Rodney Martinez 2nd-3rd Grade Principal i Sports and Sportsmanship Children's sports should be fun, fulfilling, and teach good sportsmanship. Sometimes, however, competitive and assertive adults can undermine these goals and ruin the child's experience. The key is to make sure every- one involved is supportive of the child and practices good sportsmanship. Here aresome tips: Let children choose. Make sure that your child chooses which sports to try. Parents can unknowingly pressure their children to live up to their athletic dreams or accomplishments. Encourage variety. Getting too wrapped up in a single sport at a young age may lead to emotional and physical problems as your children grow. Also, parents who have invested a lot of time and money in one sport may prevent their children from trying something new. A better idea is to try a variety of sports and see what "clicks"-all the while knowifg that your child's inter- ests may change. Look for the right fit. Take extra time matching your child with the right team and league. For younger chil- dren, focus on leagues that emphasize gaining skills rather than competition. As your child progresses, he or she may want to register for leagues that are more competitive. The coach is key. Do your homework when it is time to match your child with a coach by talking to other parents and children. Concentrate on how the coach makes the children feel, how much they are learning and how much fun they are having, instead of on the win-loss record. Keep disappointment to yourself. Every child feels down when he or she has a bad day on the field or court. Do not let them feel they have disappointed you. Re- member that frustrated or disappointed children need you to be understanding and encouraging. Also, try to avoid making negative comments or even "helpful criti- cism" immediately following an event. Leave a little time so that everyone has a chance to get some perspective. Have the coach talk to parents who are over-the- top. There is often at least one parent who seems un- able to control his or her outbursts during games. Rather than handling it yourself, speak with the coach. Ask him or her to sit down and discuss how the negative actions make other parents and children feel. Tune out game time criticism. Teach children to tune out criticism while they are playing. Help them develop a mental shield, so that any taunting remarks from the audience bounce right off them. Penalize unsportsmanlike conduct. As in many sports, there is a penalty for unsportsmanlike behavior. Make sure your children know that your family has a policy as well. Never allow your children to get away with name-calling, dirty play, cheating, or acting out. Have firm rules in place and enforce them. If the bad behavior persists, pull your child from the team. Finally, do not push your child. It would be amazing if your child became an Olympic star or professional athlete. But remember that the chances of that occurring are slim, even for children who excel at a young age. Encourage their ambition, but understand that the main reasons to get involved in sports are to learn teamwork, have fun, get fit and make friends.
