Many thanks for all of your support and patience this winter season with so many canceled games due to the snow days.
We have been able to secure some additional gym time and are in the process of rescheduling some of the canceled games. Notifications will go out to players with emails in our system, otherwise check your team schedule for new games. Some of these additional games will start the week of 3/2. As always, if you are unable to attend your game(s), please notify your coach.
For the 2015 Season, CYB is excited to announce our Fifth Annual Sportsmanship Award. A player from each team will be awarded Best Sportsman for their team. Winners will be selected by their coaches and announced at the CYB League Banquet on Thursday, March 26th.
This year’s winners will receive a ticket to the Boston Celtics Game on Sunday April 12th, at 3 pm vs Cleveland Cavaliers (LeBron James!). CYB will have 5 chaperones to take the players to the game.
Ideal Characteristics of Good Sportsmanship
Good sportsmanship is about playing by the rules, discipline, respect, and self- control. A good sport has fun because they enjoy playing the game more than the final outcome of the game.
Demonstrate respect to yourself by treating others the way you want to be treated
Respect not only your teammates, but also your opponents
Respect your coaches and the officials of the game
Always respect the rules of the game
Always play fair
Accept the judgment calls of the coaches and the officials without argument
Offer encouragement to teammates, especially when they make mistakes
Forgive yourself when you make a mistake and get right back into the game
Lose without pouting
Win without gloating
All tickets for the winners have been donated by the Charlestown Mothers Association. CMA has secured a large number of tickets for this event as well, so families may also contact CMA directly if they are interested in attending the game. The winners’ tickets will be in the same section with the CMA tickets so there will be a large contingency of Charlestown Celtics fans sitting together for the game!
Many thanks to CMA for their support of our program and providing this wonderful opportunity to our players!!!
