STUDENT MESSAGES

For Use Through March 12, 2016
JOSH PAYNE, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM LYNDON HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS THAT SPORTSMANSHIP IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN PARTICIPATING IN SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. SPORTSMANSHIP IS ALSO APPRECIATED AND RESPECTED BY THOSE WATCHING AND SUPPORTING THESE ACTIVITIES. COMPETITORS ARE ABLE TO FOCUS ON THE SPORT AND HAVE FUN WHEN EVERYONE PRACTICES GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
IN AN INTENSE GAME, YOU MAY NOT NOTICE A REFEREE UNTIL HE MAKES A BAD CALL. A REFEREE IS A LIVING PERSON AND THEY HAVE FEELINGS AS WELL. EMILY SCHWANT, A SENIOR AT MISSION VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL IN ESKRIDGE, KS, ASKS TO PLEASE REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO A GAME OFFICIAL, AS THEY ARE PROBABLY ALREADY AWARE THAT THEY HAVE MADE A MISTAKE. WITHOUT OFFICIALS, THERE WOULD NO LONGER BE GAMES. THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE AT A SPORTING EVENT AND AN OFFICIAL MAKES A BAD CALL, REMEMBER THAT EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES ONCE IN AWHILE.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
BAILEY REISWIG, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM FLINTHILLS HIGH SCHOOL IN ROSALIA, KS, THINKS THAT SPORTSMANSHIP HAS BECOME A LOST ART TO MANY SPECTATORS. IT TAKES A GREAT DEAL OF CHARACTER TO SMILE AT YOUR OPPONENT AND TELL THEM “GOOD GAME” AFTER A DEVASTATING LOSS. NO MATTER THE SITUATION OR SCORE, SPORTSMANSHIP MUST ALWAYS TAKE PRESIDENCE OVER ANYTHING THAT MAY HAVE HAPPENED ON THE COURT OR ON THE FIELD. SOMEONE IS ALWAYS WATCHING AND THEY CAN TELL HOW MUCH CHARACTER YOU HAVE BY THE WAY YOU ACT IN GAME SITUATIONS.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
TEAMWORK IS SOMETHING EVERY TEAM MUST HAVE IN ORDER TO BE SUCCESSFUL SAYS COLSON REAMES, A SENIOR FROM BELOIT HIGH SCHOOL. IF YOU LOOK AT ANY GREAT TEAM, YOU WILL FIND TEAMWORK IS THE KEY. WHILE TEAMS MAY HAVE GREAT ATHLETES, EVERYONE HAS TO WORK TOGETHER AND NOT PLAY FOR THEMSELVES IF THEY WANT TO WIN. TEAMWORK IS ESSENTIAL IF YOU WORK WITH PEOPLE. THE BETTER YOUR TEAM WORKS TOGETHER, THE BETTER YOU’LL BE AS AN INDIVIDUAL.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
PAIGE PEARSON, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM OSAGE CITY HIGH SCHOOL, SPORTSMANSHIP IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF A HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITY. SPORTSMANSHIP SHOWS STRENGTH OF CHARACTER, MATURITY AND SCHOOL SPIRIT. OFFICIALS, PLAYERS AND OPPOSING TEAMS APPRECIATE GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP AND IT MAKES GAMES MUCH MORE FUN. PLEASE SHOW GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP AT HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES SO THAT EVERYONE CAN HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE GAME.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
WHAT’S A TEAM OR SPORT WITHOUT ANY LEADERSHIP, ASKS WALTER GOUDEAU, A SENIOR AT WICHITA SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL? THE NUMBER ONE KEY TO A TEAM’S SUCCESS IS THE LEADERSHIP. COACHES CAN CONCENTRATE MORE ON FUNDAMENTALS INSTEAD OF DISCIPLINE WHEN THERE ARE GOOD TEAM LEADERS. HAVING GOOD LEADERSHIP REFLECTS ON YOUR TEAMMATES BECAUSE YOU’RE LEADING BY EXAMPLE AND THE TEAM FOLLOWS WHAT YOU DO.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
TAYLOR WILLIAMS, A SENIOR AT PAOLA HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS THAT OFFICIALS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS. THESE HARDWORKING MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD BE THANKED AND APPRECIATED FOR ALL THE WORK THEY DO. PLAYERS, AFTER YOUR NEXT GAME, GO GIVE THE OFFICIALS A FIST BUMP OR A HIGH FIVE. PARENTS AND FANS, HOLD YOUR TONGUE THE NEXT TIME YOU WANT TO CALL OUT THE OFFICIALS. OFFICIALS ARE HUMAN. THEY DON’T INTENTIONALLY MISS CALLS. OFFICIALS PICK UP ON THESE SMALL KIND GESTURES AND REMEMBER YOUR GREAT TEAM AND SCHOOL!

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016

PAUL PATTON, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM KAPAUN MT. CARMEL HIGH SCHOOL IN WICHITA, KS, ASKS THAT YOU THANK AN OFFICIAL THE NEXT TIME YOU ATTEND A GAME.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
SCOTT HIRSCH, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM PERRY-LECOMPTON HIGH SCHOOL, REMINDS YOU THAT SPORTSMANSHIP ISN’T JUST FOR ATHLETES. FANS TOO MUST EXERCISE SPORTSMANSHIP. SOMETIMES THIS CAN BE HARD, ESPECIALLY WHEN A GAME IS REALLY CLOSE AND EVERY LITTLE MOVE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IN WHICH TEAM WINS. BY BEING A GOOD SPORT AND ONLY CHEERING FOR YOUR TEAM, NOT AGAINST THE OTHER, YOU CREATE A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT WHICH CAN HELP YOUR TEAM PLAY AT ITS BEST WHEN IT COUNTS. IF WE ALL ARE BEING POSITIVE, THE ONLY POSSIBLE RESULT IS A POSITVE EFFECT.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

For Use Through March 12, 2016
RESPECT IS THE NAME OF THE GAME. RACHEL CHALUPA, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM BLUE VALLEY NORTHWEST HIGH SCHOOL IN OVERLAND PARK, KS, SAYS THAT WE COULD ALL TAKE A TRIP BACK TO KINDERGARDEN AND TAKE TO HEART THE ADVICE TO “TREAT OTHERS LIKE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED.” LEADING CHEERS FOR YOUR TEAM AND NOT AGAINST YOUR OPPONENT, STAYING SEATED AFTER A BAD CALL AND SUPPORTING AND LISTENING TO TEAMMATES, COACHES AND SPONSORS ARE ALL SIMPLE ACTS OF CLASS AND COURTESY TO CONTINUE IMPROVING THE GAME.
