FGS Sports will redefine youth sports in Georgia . We believe that participation in an organized youth sport activity is more than just the sport… it’s about the entire experience for the parent and the child.
FGS (Fun, Good Sportsmanship and Safety League) stands for and believes in these basic fundamentals:
Having Fun: Everyone Plays. Coaches emphasize the "working together" aspect of the games. The kids will develop friendships, master new skills amist healthy competition. We avoid spoiling the fun by focusing more on skills development and enjoyment of the game than on the score or outcome.
Good Sportsmanship. We believe that each child should have the proper consideration, fairness, respect and a sense of fellowship with one's competitor. These concepts are comprised of Fair play, Sportsmanship and Character. Fair play refers to all participants having an equitable chance to play. Character refers to values and habits that determine the way that child will respond to failures and successes..
Safety. We know that safety is essential in any Sports League when it comes to our children. All Coaches are screened and our Officials are certified and trained.
