In every sport there are winners and losers. A good athlete knows how to win - and how to lose.|
- When you're on the winning team - shake your opponent's hand, cheer them up and try not to seem too excited.
- When you're on the losing team - respect the winners. Shake the winner's hand and don't try to find excuses for losing.
- After losing - practice more and improve your ability.
- During the game - use all you got to win - within the boundaries of the rules.
- Pay attention to the coaches instructions and don't contradict his decisions.
- Accept the judges ruling without questioning it..
- Learn the rules of the game and know them inside out.
- Cooperate with your team-mates and play as part of a team - if you made a mistake, don't look for someone else to blame.
- Be prepared to receive both criticism and praise.
- Keep your wits about you and be disciplined at all times.
The Athlete As An Observer
Even observing at games and events requires the appropriate behaviour of an athlete.|
Cheering on the players boosts their morale and gives them lots of confidence - all of
which are vital and necessary for improving their ability to perform successfully.
There are many ways to cheer a team:
- By singing, saying team slogans, waving flags, and wearing team scarves and
- It's important to cheer on the team even when they're not doing so well.
- Prevent yourself from derogatory remarks and booing - these things don't help
anyone and they damage your honour, and the honour of the team you are cheering for.
- Do not throw anything into the court, and do not push your way into the court
or involve yourself in arguments at any time. All these things will only cause
- harm to your team.
