Random Acts of Sportsmanship - where have you gone???

Last Fall we started a program called Random Acts of Sportsmanship (RAS),  Last year we honored 14 individuals (players, coaches and officials) and 3 teams for their outstanding sportsmanship.  We asked any parent, coach, spectator or player to simply report any and all outstanding acts of sportsmanship they witnessed during a CYC game.  We had plenty of sightings last fall and then as the year went on, the reports tapered off.  We hope the sportsmanship continued, but for some reason was just not reported.

So far this fall, half way through our fall season, we have not had one RAS reported yet!  Please keep your eyes open and let us know what you see.  Reporting a RAS is simple.  You can call (314 353-8911 ext. 13) or write (buzzswanston@archstl.org ) and simple give the date, time, sport being played and the name of the person you caught in the Random Act of Sportsmanship and what that act was. 

Finally, we wanted to follow-up on a RAS that we reported and rewarded last year.  Ryan Janasik, a St. Peters in Kirkwood parishoner decided to collect old soccer jerseys from CYC programs and send them to young children in Honduras who love playing soccer.  A lot of you chipped in by donating old jerseys from your schools.  In the end Ryan had collect and shipped over 2800 jerseys to young children in Honduras.  Ryan sent us the photos below to let you see that the kids are using your jerseys. 

Ryan wants to continue helping these children and is in the planning stages of hosting a soccer tournament here in St. Louis next fall.  He wants the proceeds to be used to buy more soccer uniforms, balls and equipment so the poor children in Honduras can better enjoy the sport they love.  As soon as we have details, we will pass them along to all the CYC soccer teams.

In the meantime, keep a keen eye out for Random Acts of Sportsmanship.  These are acts that we want to encourage all our participants to display everytime they take the field or court.  Once you do see one, be sure to report it to Buzz Swanston at 314 353-8911 ext. 13 or buzzswanston@archstl.org .

Mary McDermott 3rd Grade Basketball Tournament

Mary McDermott loved the competition of sports and the camaraderie of being part of a team. A courageous, gentle fighter, Mary always gave 110% in every game – she had mastered the art of being competitive while always showing her kind spirit both to fellow teammates and opponents. Mary was constantly practicing – both trying to improve her skills and simply because she loved being active – and always knew how her favorite teams were doing. With a special fondness for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, who gave Mary her start in the game of life, Mary would be excited that the proceeds from this tournament will go to helping other children at Cardinal Glennon get in the game.

100% of the proceeds to Hybrid Cardiac Catheterization Suite that will be named in Mary's honor.
