ACC Winter Sportsmanship Week To Be Held Jan. 18-24

League and member institutions will continue sportsmanship initiative
GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – The Atlantic Coast Conference continues its sportsmanship awareness campaign by recognizing Winter Sportsmanship Week from Monday, January 18 through Sunday, January 24. ACC Sportsmanship Weeks are a campaign to emphasize sportsmanship as it relates to ACC teams, the conference and fans by designating one week during the fall, winter and spring sports seasons.
At all ACC home competitions during Winter Sportsmanship Week, every league team will showcase its continued dedication to sportsmanship by participating in a pregame handshake. In addition to the teams’ efforts, the conference and member schools will highlight the initiative to its fans through releases, social media platforms and on official websites.  

“We’re proud of our ACC member institutions’ commitment to sportsmanship, not only during the upcoming week, but throughout the year,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “It remains a priority in the ACC, and we will continue to highlight and emphasize its importance to our teams and fans.”

ACC schools will host 45 home events/dates during the 2016 ACC Winter Sportsmanship Awareness Week. All of the ACC’s winter sports – men’s and women’s basketball, indoor track and field, fencing, wrestling, and swimming and diving will be involved.

Updates on ACC Sportsmanship Week will be posted on, by the 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 have been tabbed as ACC Sportsmanship Weeks: October 19-25 (Fall), January 18-24 (Winter) and April 4-10 (Spring).
