Good Sportsmanship is a top priority of the Virginia High School League. The manner
in which your school is represented is far more important than wins and loses. Good
Sportsmanship is about respect – respect for oneself, for teammates and coaches, for your
opponents, contest officials and the game itself.
As a member of the Virginia High School League, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship is a key element to any athletics contest and everyone's conduct during the game/match can add to the enjoyment and positive atmosphere for all involved. We are confident all will show their appreciation by exhibiting good sportsmanship.
