The primary goal of the sports program in the Archdiocesan Interscholastic Athletic League is to represent Christ by exhibiting good sportsmanship through participation in and learning the basic fundamentals of our sports program, always keeping in mind that winning is not everything. Good sportsmanship is viewed by the AIAL as a commitment to Christian values of fair play, ethical/moral behavior and integrity. In perception and practice, sportsmanship is defined as those Christian qualities which are characterized by generosity and genuine concern for others. The ideals of sportsmanship apply equally to all activity disciplines. Individuals, regardless of their roles in activities, are expected to be aware of their influence on the behavior of others and model good sportsmanship.
