The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners recognized the month of March as Good Sportsmanship Month in Calvert County.
The State of Maryland and Calvert County recognizes that sports are a major social force that influences American culture, Maryland, and Calvert County families. Being involved in sports, including coaches, players, and fans at all levels, should promote good sportsmanship and foster the development of positive characteristics for physical fitness and positive personal growth.
Elements of sportsmanship reflect crucial life skills that will help players thrive throughout their education. A strong sense of character and collaboration can also prepare them for the workplace.
Sportsmanship can combat bullying and promote inclusion by providing a safe and healthy environment where players value respect, fairness, integrity, responsibility, and perseverance. Fostering a commitment to these qualities on the playing field can prevent harassment and reduce incidences of concussions and other injuries.
