We are into the winter activity season and we are enjoying great success. With that in mind, this letter is to remind Sidney parents and fans who attend these activities that while modeling appropriate adult behavior and leaving a long term impression on our students, visiting fans, and officials, we hold sportsmanship as an important and integral part of our activities. It is important that we cheer for and encourage our students and not against the other teams; that we support our coaches no matter the outcome; and that we understand the difficult task officials have. We want Sidney to continue to be a place that visitors want their communities to imitate with sportsmanship at the top of the list. The Lady Red Raiders and Red Raiders Thank You for your continued support!!!
Let the players play;
The coaches coach;
The officials officiate;
And the fans enjoy the game!!
This game is played by high school kids,
Professionals they are not;
So cheer for them when they're good
And even if they're not.
We're trying to teach some values
They can use till life is done,
In order to learn these values,
They don't have to be No. 1.
Someone is sure to win this game,
The other team will lose,
But if they play with sportsmanship
Well, they'll have paid their dues.
