Odds are, some of you beautiful Insiders play sports. Sometimes, sports can bring out the best in you! Then again, sometimes they can bring out the worst. When you are really into the game, you may become really aggressive and not really think about what you are doing or saying. Today I am going to fill you in on the importance of being a good sport and how influential being a good sport can be.
When I say being a good sport, I mean that you are respectful of other players. When you are a good sport you are not only showing them that you are a mature person, but you are also witnessing for Jesus! You are showing them love, just like Jesus showed YOU love. When the ref makes a call that you do not agree with or you are accused of something that you do not believe you did, do not blow up and get angry. I know it is hard! Just try and keep your cool. If you are calm and approach the ref and tell him that you think the call was incorrect, they will be a lot more willing to listen to you if you are calm and respectful. They might even side with you and realize that it was the wrong call! Also, if you are being scouted for scholarships, you always want to be mindful of who is watching you and act accordingly. If a scout sees you act like a crazy lady and freak out at the refs or other players, they will not be impressed with you or your character. You also want to always be respectful to your coach and the parents of your teammates. I am sure you are all lovely young lassies and are prefect angels, but I just wanted to make these points to refresh them in your noggins!
Keep your cool darlings!
