School Games Values

There are six values which form the 'Spirit of the Games' : Passion, Self-belief, Respect, Honesty, Teamwork, Determination.

Competition creates the ideal context in which to explore personal values and conduct, as through it young people can learn how to handle victory and defeat, how to believe in their abilities and achieve their personal best, and how to respect their opponents an work with their team-mates to achieve success. The way in which schools communicate these values and involve young people in championing this cause will help bring the Spirit of the Games to life. This will ensure that competitive school sport is a rich learning experience for young people, and an experience which develops them to be not only the best sports person they can be but the best person they can be as well.
