A sport is a only a tool by which one can transmit the guidance to develop a strong moral code. The teaching must occur on a conscious level and not be assumed to be a fundamental part of the participation. Through sport one can transmit the values of fair and honest competition, and respect for rules and authority. One can also help participants (coaches/players/parents) to develop a guideline for social interaction that they will carry into all future aspects of their lives. Communities: City wide.
