  • · promote sport as a "fun" activity
  • · help athletes develop a positive self-image;
  • · promote respect for the rules, opponents and officials and their decisions;
  • · encourage athletes to have a constructive attitude toward competition;
  • · encourage honest rivalry, courteous relations and graceful acceptance of the results;
  • · help athletes develop a sense of dignity under all circumstances;
  • · provide an equal opportunity for all to learn skills;
  • · encourage all individuals to continue participation in our sport
