MHSAA Holding Student Sportsmanship Summits

EAST LANSING---A focus on high school student sportsmanship, during and also outside of competition, will highlight this fall’s Michigan High School Athletic Association annual Sportsmanship Summit series, which will run during the first two full weeks of November.
 

The MHSAA has conducted Sportsmanship Summits across Michigan for more than 20 years and again will visit four sites this fall. The Summit series kicks off Nov. 5 in Traverse City and finishes Nov. 14 in Ann Arbor.
 

MHSAA staff, with assistance from school administrators and the MHSAA Student Advisory Council, conduct Sportsmanship Summits. More than 1,000 students from more than 100 schools are expected to take part in the four workshops, where they will discuss the line that separates good from bad sportsmanship, both as athletes during competition and when it comes to cheering at athletic events.

Instruction will be based in part on insights gained during the Student Advisory Council’s Battle of the Fans competitions, which annually began recognizing the best student cheering section in Michigan during the 2011-12 winter season.

Details for BOTF VIII will be introduced during all four Summit stops.
 

This fall’s Summits again will feature hands-on breakout sessions and opportunities for students to meet with and discuss sportsmanship with local game officials, who will explain sportsmanship from their points of view and how they may differ from what students experience as competitors or fans.

Members of the Student Advisory Council have developed and will instruct during another breakout session and also play a role in the opening all-Summit presentation. To conclude the Summits, the delegation from each participating school will meet to develop a sportsmanship campaign to implement upon returning to school.
 

Sessions will take place at the following:

• Traverse City – Nov. 5 – Grand Traverse Resort – 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 
• Saginaw – Nov. 7 – Saginaw Valley State University – 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 
• Grand Rapids – Nov. 12 – Crowne Plaza Airport – 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 
• Ann Arbor – Nov. 14 – Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel – 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
 

Registration at each site is limited to the first 250 students and administrators. Schools are welcome to bring as many as 10 total representatives, including two administrators.

For additional registration information, contact Andy Frushour at the MHSAA office – afrushour@mhsaa.com or (517) 332-5046. Registration information also is available on the MHSAA Website at www.mhsaa.com on the “Students” page under the “Schools” tab.
