About 'Respect the Game'

Created in 2004, the Respect the Game program was the culmination of the OHSAA's Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Committee along with ideas and input from administrators, coaches and student-athletes across Ohio.

Public Service Announcements

The OHSAA has created Public Service Announcements that promote Respect the Game and other programs. These PSAs are available for free download here for use by member schools and the media. Many of these PSAs are available in video format, as well. To obtain a free DVD, email tstried@ohsaa.org.
