Please review and observe as you fellowship during the game. The philosophy of HIM Basketball is to train and equip each player for the future. Athletic competition, such as basketball, places players under pressure therefore providing an opportunity to build character qualities such as obedience, submission, respect for authority and self-control, even when one’s emotions are stressed. This is also true for coaches, parents and other spectators. Therefore we ask that you do not justify any of your actions because of the intensity of competition, but adhere to the high code of conduct set forth in God’s Word (So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you. Matthew 7:12).
1. Athletic competition is a game that should be fun and rewarding. Winning and losing have few if any significant long term consequences.
2. The important factor is how one conducts him/herself at play. Competition can teach one how to conduct themselves in “fair” and “unfair” situations, how to have a proper attitude towards winning and losing, and how to work as a team. Good sportsmanship is a character quality.
3. Players, coaches and fans here at Harvester are subject to a high code of behavior because of our commitment to Jesus Christ.
4. The officials are the authority during the game. They are not to be taunted or criticized.
5. Cheering is to be positive and encouraging.
6. Fans and coaches are to set the example of good sportsmanship
