STEVENS POINT, Wis. — More than 650 students and administrators of 104 teams representing 92 member high schools attended the 2016 WIAA/Rural Mutual Insurance Sportsmanship Summit held in Stevens Point, Wis., today.
Schools from throughout the state were in attendance at the Holiday Inn & Convention Center. Each school was represented by at least one six-member team consisting of students, school administrators, coaches, school board members, media and/or community leaders.
The mission of the Sportsmanship Summit was to strengthen the principles of sportsmanship by promoting teamwork, sharing resources and providing the impetus to make a difference in member schools.

The event was intended to assist schools in addressing citizenship and sportsmanship values with students, student-athletes, adult fans, advisors, parents and booster clubs; developing plans to improve and maintain sportsmanship; and setting sportsmanship expectations.

The Summit began with a brief welcome from WIAA Executive Director Dave Anderson, followed by morning keynote speaker Craig Hillier, professional speaker and author of Playing Beyond the Scoreboard.

Five 40-minute breakout sessions followed with each topic being presented three times: The five topics of the five breakout sessions were:   

“The Coach and Participants Role in Sportsmanship” by Steve Jones, Kimberly Football Coach
“School Sportsmanship Expectations” by Jeremy Martin & Nick Senger, WIAA Sportsmanship Committee
“Sportsmanship: The Officials Prospective” by Jeff Dorschner, WIAA Licensed Official and Crivitz AD
“Responsible and Respectful Social Media” by David Petroff, Edgewood College Sports Information Director
“Sportsmanship Roundtable Discussions” by Shane Been & Todd Fischer, WIAA Sportsmanship Committee

After lunch, the assembly heard comments from Pam Foegen, president of the WIAA Board of Control, and Bill Kriese of Rural Mutual Insurance. The afternoon keynote address by Ross Bernstein, best-selling author and professional speaker, closed the program.
