|Thanks to the Sportsmanship Brigade, this Kobe won’t be locked out.|
Sportsmanship is hard work and building it in the community takes help from everyone. As many of you know, the Sports Commission’s Sportsmanship Brigade has been operational for several months now. For those who are not aware, the Sportsmanship Brigade is a group of volunteers who visit St. Louis area youth sporting events looking for acts of good sportsmanship. Coaches, athletes, parents, and fans found “guilty” of committing acts of good sportsmanship are rewarded with a certificate of recognition and a gift card to a local business on the spot. Someone always seems to have a camera when something bad happens. The Sportsmanship Brigade wants to be present for and help promote the good things that happen in youth sports.
We need your help to accomplish this objective. The Sportsmanship Brigade needs you (yes, you), your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to volunteer and serve with us. You’ll be part of team having a tremendous impact on the lives of kids. Just have a look at previous posts about Brigade award winners – Kobe shares spotlight with teammates…huh?, Sportsmanship Brigade recognizes city high schoolers, and one of my personal favorites – Coach Mark Roshell – In His Own Words. And when you’re done with those, go to our website by clicking here and sign-up to volunteer with the Sportsmanship Brigade. Remember, sportsmanship is an action word. Take action and join the Sportsmanship Brigade today. Until next time…
Be a Good Sport!
