About The Great Sportsmanship Programme
- Mobilising Communities Into Sportsmanship
The Great Sportsmanship Programme is dedicated to getting sportsmanship values back into sport and on the streets and parks across the world. Our Great Sportsmanship facebook page contains short snippets of sportsmanship stories – one new snippet every day. The Great Moments of Sportsmanship book is a small part of the programme and is a collection of true, two minute stories – tapping deep into our emotions. Additional stories are added by myself and readers of this blog. Discussions grow here too. There’s more. Video clips of many of the stories can be viewed in ‘Watch The Action‘ section. The stories can also be listened to via the radio interviews in the ‘Great Reviews‘ section. Our Code Of Conduct & posters are available in ‘Spread The Moment‘. The book, this blog, the facebook page, the twitter stream and youtube , ambassador programme and public speaking are part of this flexible educational programme – available free to schools. The goal is to mobilise whole communities into sportsmanship. Join us – become an ambassador. Tell us your story in ‘Share The Moment‘ -we’ll publish you on facebook, maybe the blog and possibly the next edition fo the book & we’ll always acknowledge you. Say ‘yes’ to Great Sportsmanship.
