League schools highlight sportsmanship initiatives during spring competition

GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – The Atlantic Coast Conference will continue its ACC Sportsmanship Awareness campaign by highlighting Spring Sportsmanship Awareness Week from April 9-15.

During competition from Monday, April 9 through Sunday, April 15, every league team will showcase its continued dedication to sportsmanship by participating in a pregame handshake prior to each contest. In addition to the teams’ efforts, the conference and member schools will continue to highlight the program to its fans through releases, across social media platforms, videos elements and official websites.

“Sportsmanship remains a priority within the ACC,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We will continue to highlight and emphasize its importance throughout our league and specifically to our teams and fans.”

Established in 2010, the ACC Sportsmanship Awareness Weeks is a campaign to recognize and promote sportsmanship. During the 2011-12 academic year, three specific weeks have been tabbed as ACC Sportsmanship Awareness Weeks: October 17-23 (Fall), January 23-29 (Winter) and April 9-14 (Spring).

More than 80 events will be part of the 2012 ACC Spring Sportsmanship Awareness Week including 30 baseball games, 20 softball games, 14 men’s and 13 women’s tennis matches, one men’s and three women’s lacrosse games, two rowing invitationals, two outdoor track & field meets and one men’s golf tournament.
