Help Bench Bad Behavior in Field Hockey
How Can You Help Encourage Sportsmanship and Bench Bad Behavior in Field Hockey?
- Help spread the word! USA Field Hockey and the NFHS have a #BenchBadBehavior toolkit with content you can print or send digitally to raise awareness and encourage good sportsmanship.
- Watch your own behavior and hold yourself to the highest standard of sportsmanship. Support and show appreciation for the athletes, coaches, umpires administrators and other fans. Thank them for the roles they play in allowing games to be played and enjoyed.
- Encourage good sportsmanship among your team. Promote good behavior and make it the norm. If you see bad behavior, respectfully and safely address it before it gets out of hand.
- Become a field hockey coach, umpire and champion! Coaches, umpires and leaders are needed at all levels of field hockey; they are essential and can have tremendous influence on the lives of others. USA Field Hockey has tools and resources to help individuals new to the sport – and those with experience – get started and develop as coaches, umpires and field hockey champions, on and off the field.
Together, we are Team USA. Together, we can #BenchBadBehavior in field hockey and all sports!
