Jammy: Sportsmanship Reminder and Recruiting Rules!

Here we go, Coaches! The season is HERE!

As we kick off another great year, The JAM Brands wants to remind all coaches that SPORTSMANSHIP IS KEY! As Your Partner in Spirit, we are encouraging all coaches, athletes and spectators to demonstrate good sportsmanship at every event. We want to remind everyone why we are involved in the sport….to train our athletes to be strong in body and mind while showcasing their talents and hard work! We ask you to demand that your athletes, parents and coaches exemplify positive team pride by having a sportsmanlike attitude and acting with respect and class.

We want to remind you of The JAM Brands Sportsmanship Creed:

The JAM Brands Sportsmanship Creed – The JAM Brands strives to build a fun and family atmosphere for all participants, coaches and spectators. We value healthy rivalry and encourage team spirit! Participants, coaches and spectators must represent themselves and their teams with pride at all times. They shall show respect to their competitors on and off the performance floor. With a positive competition atmosphere, The JAM Brands can ensure great events!

Furthermore, we want to remind you that any unsportsmanlike conduct by coaches, athletes and spectators during an event is not acceptable and could result in a point deduction and/or disqualification.

NEW for 2010-2011: At JAM Brands events this season, the recruiting of athletes and promoting your gym to explicitly recruit athletes is strictly prohibited. Please refrain from the following things: 1) Flyers with tryout information, gym location, number, website, etc. 2) T-Shirts with tryout dates on them. T-Shirts with gym name, logo and website are acceptable as long as there is no reference to recruitment of athletes. 3) Coaches, owners, directors, etc. talking to other athletes about attending their gym.

We have a tremendous opportunity to make a positive impact on so many lives in our industry. Thank you for working with us to ensure that every event this season will be full of sportsmanship, class and FUN!

Here’s to a JAM good season…
