More Random Acts of Sportmanship!Updated Wednesday February 15, 2017 by CYC Office.
As a Catholic Youth Council we take pride in our long tradition of providing youth throughout the St. Louis area with opportunities to compete with their parish and friends in a variety of sports. For 75 years the CYC has sponsored Archdiocesan playoffs, recognizing league, district and area wide champions.
Eight years ago, the CYC started a program called Random Acts of Sportsmanship (RAS). We asked any parent, coach, spectator or player to simply report any and all outstanding acts of sportsmanship they witnessed during a CYC game. These are acts that we want to encourage all our participants to display every time they take the field or court. In addition to recognizing winners of games, we feel it is imperative for the CYC to search for and recognize Acts of Sportsmanship at our athletic events. As a Catholic organization we must train our children to display Christian values in all parts of their lives, especially during athletic competition.
The idea is to “catch” players, coaches, officials, and even fans performing Random Acts of Sportsmanship at games. If you see a RAS, please contact the CYC Office, so those folks can be recognized and rewarded for being good sports. Please be on the lookout for Random Acts of Sportsmanship, and email firstname.lastname@example.org to report them!!
