Oregon Youth Soccer Association and the Portland Timbers partnered with the Positive Coaching Alliance for the first ever HONOR THE GAME® Virtual Week! This will take place online September 19th - 27th, 2020.
Honor the Game is best stated by PCA founder Jim Thompson, “Many people talk a good game regarding sportsmanship, but the test is how one acts when it feels like something important is at stake.”
If you are an Oregon Youth Soccer player, or a parent of a player, we ask to post a photo in your soccer jersey and write a small note explaining how you Honor the Game using PCA’s ROOTS of the game. The ROOTS of the game showcase respect for the Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates and Self.
Please post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #OYSAHonorTheGame in order for us to track your posts. We will highlight and reshare the best stories and photos Nationally, with the best post receiving a very special prize!
Although we are staying inside and not playing soccer, we are all in this together! We hope to celebrate how impactful playing sports the right way can be.
