ACC Spring Sportsmanship Week To Be Held April 4-10

League and member institutions will continue sportsmanship initiative

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The Atlantic Coast Conference will continue its sportsmanship awareness campaign by recognizing 2016 Spring Sportsmanship Week from Monday, April 4 through Sunday, April 10.

ACC Sportsmanship Weeks are a campaign to emphasize sportsmanship as it relates to ACC teams, the conference and fans during the fall, winter and spring seasons.

At ACC home competitions during Spring Sportsmanship Week, every league team will showcase its continued dedication to sportsmanship, with student-athletes participating in pregame handshakes prior to events. In addition to the teams’ efforts, the conference and member schools will highlight the initiative to fans through releases, social media platforms and official websites.

A total of 89 intercollegiate athletic events are slated at ACC venues during the 2016 ACC Spring Sportsmanship Awareness Week. All spring sports (baseball, softball, rowing, men’s and women’s track & field, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s golf, and men’s and women’s tennis) will be involved.

Updates on ACC Sportsmanship Week are periodically posted on theACC.com, by the league’s Facebook , Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts and using #ACCSportsmanship.

Established in 2010, the ACC Sportsmanship Week initiative is a campaign to recognize and promote sportsmanship. During the 2015-16 academic year, three specific weeks were tabbed as ACC Sportsmanship Weeks: October 19-25 (Fall), January 18-24 (Winter) and April 4-10 (Spring).
