This is an initiative of the government to protect the environment. Athletes should contribute to the society. They will serve as the role model of teens. If you are training for SEA games, there are others things that you should think beside going green. You should also think about:

Camaraderie

When you play, you should think of the friends you would win not the enemies or opponents you will beat. Your sport will serve as you avenue to meet new people. You will meet many people with the same interest. Isn’t it thrilling?

Sportsmanship

Sportsmanship is a conduct that is considered fitting for athletes. It covers the playing fair, respect for fellow athletes and graciousness should you lose. This is an important for all athletes. You need to accept that sometimes, you will lose. If you cannot accept that, playing is not for you.

Discipline

Discipline in sports means ensuring proper behaviour during training and the actual game. It is more like a mindset. You should be trained to have order and control.

Enjoy the game

When you play, you should enjoy every second of it. Whether you win or lose, taking pleasure in what you do can make a difference. There are athletes that are very serious that they don’t remember to have fun. Games were developed so people can have fun not to create misunderstanding and dispute.

Good luck to the athletes and may they bring home gold.
