Golden West League
2018-2019 Sportsmanship Summit
This week on Wednesday, 9/12/18 the Grizzlies attended the GWL Sportsmanship Summit. Segerstrom hosted this year’s GWL gathering of student-athlete representatives from each of the league high schools: Garden Grove, Godinez, Ocean View, Segerstrom, Westminster, and Western. Thanks to Segerstrom AD – Nick Canzone and Sega ASB for your hospitality.
The attending athletes represented their respective sports and came together for a morning of positive interaction lead by Positive Coaching Alliance presentor, Jeaney Garcia (former USA Women’s Basketball Coach). Ms. Garcia discussed what positive leadership & sportsmanship is and looks like as the athletes put ideas into practice throughout the morning.
All groups did a great job and contributed to the spirit of the summit. After the presentation, athletes were grouped by their respective sports for introductions and smaller group interaction/discussions. Those groups then went outside for some fun competition in several events; ski race, ping pong, water ballon toss and corn hole! Overall it was a very fun experience for all the GWL athletes and ADs in attendance. The perfect way to start this year’s new league competition with getting to know each other and spreading good will/positive sportsmanship leadership! Leadership is making those around you better while respecting the game, opponent, officials, teammates and yourself! Also, a special s/o to Chick-fil-a for providing lunch to everyone.
We are all looking forward to a great year of Golden West League competition and this summit helped to set the tone for a positive experience for everyone! Thanks to the following Godinez attendees. I know your will all “pay it forward” and communicate what you learned with other Grizzlies in your sports area. GREAT JOB AT THE SUMMIT!
