There were a lot of great games and a lot of great sportsmanship moments! We celebrate sportsmanship just as much as we do the tournament winners, as we have dozens of sportsmanship plaques to award to individuals throughout the day who show exemplary sportsmanship. Kids were seen helping up their teammates and opponents, encouraging teammates who were struggling, and even admitting to the referee the ball was out of bounds off of them.
