Respect. “Sevasmos” in Greek. “Saygi” in Turkish. Same thing in any language. We show respect to our parents, to our teachers, to our environment. On the basketball court, we show respect to our coaches, the referees, and our fellow teammates and opponents. Respect is a key part to meeting, understanding, and getting along with new people and cultures, and something important to everyone in PeacePlayers International – Cyprus.
The PPI – CY girls’ team from Lapta/Lapitos understand that respect is important in both basketball and life. This month we asked them to come up with skits demonstrating when you show respect and how you show respect. The results exceeded our expectations. The girls came up with three skits: respect between players on the court, between a mother and daughter, and between girls at school. We hope you enjoy!
