Sportsmanship expresses an aspiration or ethos that the activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with one's competitors. Being a "good sport" involves being a "good winner" as well as being a "good loser".

Sportsmanship can be conceptualized as an enduring and relatively stable characteristic or disposition such that individuals differ in the way they are generally expected to behave in sport situations. In general, sportsmanship refers to virtues such as fairness, self-control, courage and persistence and has been associated with interpersonal concepts of treating others and being treated fairly, maintaining self-control in dealing with others, and respect for both authority and opponents.

A competitor who exhibits poor sportsmanship after losing a game or contest is often called a "sore loser" (those who show poor sportsmanship after winning are typically called "bad winners"). Behavior includes blaming others, not taking responsibility for personal actions, reacting immaturely or improperly, making excuses for one's loss, referring to unfavorable conditions or other petty issues. A bad winner acts in a shallow fashion such as gloating about his or her win, rubbing it in the face of the one who lost and lowering the opponent's "self-esteem" by constantly reminding them of how "poorly" they performed in comparison (even if they participated well).



The Board of Mid-Continent Athletics has unanimously voted to institute a zero tolerance policy for unacceptable behavior by its players, coaches, umpires and fans in the stands. Any fowl, abusive or derogatory comments or statements made towards anyone can and will lead to ejection from the game or stands and possible suspension from participating in or attending future games.

The Board of Mid-Continent Athletics is made up of people volunteering their time to provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for kidís ages 4 to 18 to play summer ball. We ask that everyone either participating in or attending a league game keep this in mind and refrain from any actions that could jeopardize the enjoyment of the game our kids are playing.
