What Is Spirit Of The Game?

Spirit of the Game is the mindful behavior practiced by players worldwide in a mutual effort to protect the basic joy of play. 

It encompasses attitudes and skills such as good knowledge and application of the rules, fair-mindedness, safe play and spatial awareness, clear and calm communication, and a positive and respectful attitude towards teammates, fans, and opponents, in a mutual effort to protect the basic joy of play.

At the heart of the awareness event is an effort to promote the five core aspects of SOTG: know the rules, avoid body contact, be fair-minded, enjoy playing, and communicate respectfully.
