Is the most important thing?
Or do you simply enjoy playing the game regardless of the final result?
How you answer these questions might give you some into whether you're a good sport or not.
Although most games have winners and losers, the of sports is not to win every game.
The real goals include gettinghavingand learning important skills, like teamwork and good.
Good is all about.
Good sports the other players on their team.
They the players on teams.
They their coaches, and they also the or other officials involved in their games.
So what does bad look like?
Bad is all about disrespect.
Yelling at teammates when they mess up during the game; cheating or trying to gain an unfair over players; talking back to coaches or —those are all examples of bad.
Kids learn — good and bad — from the adults in their lives.
Players' parents and coaches set examples that kids tend to follow.
If parents and coaches show disrespect to other fans, referees, or each other, kids will likely act the same way on the field.
Good can be shown in many ways.
Some of them are very basic and easy to do, like shaking hands are you good sports be careful your money other players before or after a game.
Other examples may take a little moresuch as a great play made by the team.
Learning good is important because it helps you develop an of and that will carry over into all the other areas of your life.
If you're a good sport on the field, you'll also likely be a good sport in the classroom.
Being a good sport in the classroom will eventually lead to being a good sport in the workplace.
So be a good sport in whatever you do!
The you set can be a powerful teaching tool for others.
When others see you acting in a way that makes it clear that winning isn't the most important thing, you can move on to focusing on the important things, like havinggetting source, and improving your skills!

I've played sports my whole life but I've never trash talked the other team or anything like that.
And even when you win, you shouldn't be a sore winner either.
So thank you Wonderopolis for sending this message out to the world.
Great points, Kennedy F!
Competition is great, and being a good sport is super important!
Being a good winner or loser is just as important, especially since we all should have a good time playing our sport.

Thanks for sharing your comment!

Respect is very important-- it's not about winning and losing, it's about having fun and doing your best!
You shared some great ways to be a good sport, thank you for WONDERing with us!
HOORAY for our Wonder Friends- keep up the great work!
I am really competitive, though.
When I am playing sports, I am not on a team or anything, I play with my brothers or sisters.
I like it when it is fun, but I also want to win really bad, but I remind myself that it is just for fun, so I don't get mad if I lose.
But if I am playing an educational computer game, I sometimes get really mad if I don't win, but then I always play one more game and then I win, and I always remind myself that the games are just to help you learn and they are for fun, too.
Thank you for today's wonder!
When you win, say good game.
It is not about winning it is about fun!
Pass to people and say good game.
You did a SUPER job of summarizing what you learned in our Wonder today, Skyler and Sofia!
We think it's more important to have a good attitude and be a good sport than it is to win or lose.
It's all about having fun!
Every Saturday Danny goes and plays soccer and at the end of each game we shake hands with the other team and say good game.
When me and Danny go to https://riobec.info/are/are-there-sign-on-bonuses-for-the-national-guard.html we always show good sportsmenship.
No mater where you are on the fields or at home or at school you should always show good sportmenship.
That sounds like a great way to be a good sport, Petch and Daniel!
Shaking your opponents hands and saying "good game" are very important- it is a sign of respect!
We think you're right: no matter where you are playing, you should always be a good sport!
When you give good sportsmanship you not only make yourself feel better, but it makes other people become more open to you as a friend and it also makes them feel good about their work.
We think that it is also important to have good sportsmanship so that you can focus more on the skill in that sport, rather than insulting others.
And a question, how old do you think we are?
From Thea and Kendall The Pupsicles Thanks for sharing your awesome comments, Thea and Kendall The Pupsicles!
We really enjoyed reading your comment- you're right, good sportsmanship is a part of playing any sport, whether you win or lose.
It's about having fun and trying your best!
Thanks for visiting us today!
When I signed up for basketball, after every game I said "Good game", or "Nice shot".
Once I was a bad sport, and I saw that my teammate was really sad, but then somebody from my are on a minecraft server jar told me something mean, so I felt really bad.
I learned that good sportsmanship is not only saying good game, and other nice things, it's also respecting others, even if you lose, and the other team wins.
Hey there, Wonder Friend Lali!
We are so glad to hear that you've been thinking about what it means to be a good sport!
Good sportsmanship includes respecting others and meaning what you say, even if you lose.
Thanks for being such a great Wonder Friend!
But I learned that to be a better sport you should respect everyone.
Like the other team too, and the coaches, it's just not are you good sports be careful your money team that you have to respect.
I have been a bad sport before but not often but I experience students being bad sports almost everyday, mostly at recess.
But there is still bad sportsman ship in P.
E we often work on being a good sport, and encourage your team and other team to do better.
And we work on Respecting each other a lot.
Just yesterday my P.
E teacher told us the 3 c's 1: Communication 2: Cooperation 3: Consideration.
That's great news, Wonder Friend Justin!
We are so glad to hear that you're working on being a good sport every time you participate in a group activity!
We know it's hard to be a good are you good sports be careful your money from time to time, but having a positive attitude is always a great idea!
It sounds like the 3 C's are a great reminder for what it means to be a great sport!
Thank you for sharing, Justin!
When Gaya had a swimming competition, even though I lost I didn't cry and try to get over it.
When Yui had a competition of violin I didn't get 1st or 2nd place, but I thought it was a good challenge for me.
We learned a lot from this post.
Thank you for reminding us again!
Gaya and Yui, thank you for sharing your WONDERful comments today!
We are very proud of you for doing your best to be good sports!
We are also very happy to know that you're involved in cool activities, like swimming and music!

With winning I sometimes even behave like a kindergartener, is that how you spell it?
I can work on it by remembering to have fun.
Thank you for sharing your comments today, Shubha, Cate and Nadia!
We are glad that you're here today because being a good sport is more important than winning or losing!
It sounds like your P.
Nadia, we are glad to hear that you're working on remembering to have fun and be a good sport when you compete.
We bet you'll do a great job and you'll be a good sport in no time at all!
Winning is not everything.
It's all about the fun and learning new skills.
Starting as a good sport earlier will help you be a good sport as you get older.
What We Think: We think that this article is good for kids.
Everyone should know that you should be a good sport.
Even if you lose.
If kids who are bad sports read this article they could see how it affects other kids and they might stop being a bad sport and they might change their attitude.
What We Learned: 1.
It's important to have good https://riobec.info/are/are-there-penny-slots-in-atlantic-city.html />It's not about winning and losing.
It's about having fun.
We give good comments to the people who played well in the game.
Thoughts: We think this is a great post because it shows why you should show good sportsmanship.
If no one did that, we would not have any fun.
You are so very right, Wonder Friends Ha Ryn and Zoe!
It's important to have fun and be a good sport, no matter how the game ends!
We love all the awesome connections you made and the thoughts you shared-- it sounds like you have a good sportsmanship attitude!
When I win I don't go to people faces and start calling them names for the rest of the recess.
But I sometimes say good game and shake the opposing teams hand as well.
Last year I was in grade 4.
My friends and I play a lot of soccer and when we lose we all say good game and shake the opposing team's hands.
While it can be tough to be a good sport at times, we have to remember that a positive attitude is more important in the long run!
We think shaking hands and saying good game is a great way to be a good sport!
Thank you for sharing your comment!
Good afternoon, Wonder Friends Sofia and Skyler!
We are so glad you enjoyed our Wonder about being a good sport!

Griselda - The opposing team once gave my team a mean look.
Sade - I show sportsmanship when I beat my brother in basketball.
Emely - When my brother doesn't win, I remind him it's not about winning, it's about how you play.
Demarcus - I show sportsmanship when the other team loses and I tell them "good game.

It's the start of drumline season for me, and I really want quads.
There are six of us wanting five spots, and I'm getting really competitive for my spot for quads I had last year.
I'm not sure if it's because I feel like I have superiority, but whoever gets the spots gets them.
I think tomorrow's wonder will be about jokes or fools or something.
Emily Emily, we wish you the best of luck this drumline season!
Remember to keep your head held high, no matter what happens!
Being a good sport is part of who you are, and we know that you'll have a great time being a part of the line.

Say maybe next time you'll win.
Don't make fun of other players.
Doesn't matter if you win or lose.
Be positive and be nice.
Pass to people and say good game.

Don't say mean words because you are emptying your friends bucket.
Being healthy and strong is a good goal.
If you empty your friends bucket they will not want to play with you, but if you fill up their bucket, they will want to play with you.
We all want friends to play with us.
You have to show respect, or you might get a big consequence.
We love wondering everyday with you.
These are all great suggestions for being a good sport!

He went to his friends baseball game and a guy on the other team almost hit a home run, but then he got out at 3rd.
Our student told him that he had a good hit!
We didn't know that that took courage to do!

It is a pity, that now I can not express - I hurry up on job. But I will be released - I will necessarily write that I think on this question.
I am assured, what is it to me at all does not approach. Who else, what can prompt?
In my opinion you are not right. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will discuss.
Do not despond! More cheerfully!

The properties leaves, what that
What phrase... super, magnificent idea
Instead of criticising write the variants is better.
I am sorry, that has interfered... This situation is familiar To me. Let's discuss.
I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are mistaken. Let's discuss. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.
