GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference continues its sportsmanship awareness campaign by recognizing Fall Sportsmanship Week from October 15-21. ACC Sportsmanship Weeks are a campaign to emphasize and promote sportsmanship as it relates to ACC teams, the conference and fans by designating one week during the fall, winter and spring seasons.

At all ACC home competitions during Fall 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.

"The ACC is committed to upholding the values of sportsmanship,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We are proud that all our member institutions continue to emphasize the importance of sportsmanship through this initiative.”

Over 60 intercollegiate athletic events will take place during the 2012 ACC Fall Sportsmanship Awareness Week. All fall sports (men’s soccer, women’s soccer, cross country, field hockey, volleyball, and football) will be involved.

Updates on ACC Sportsmanship Week will be posted on theACC.com, theACC on Facebook and on Twitter tagged with #ACCSportsmanship.

Established in 2010, the ACC Sportsmanship Weeks is a campaign to recognize and promote sportsmanship. During the 2012-13 academic year, three specific weeks have been tabbed as ACC Sportsmanship Weeks: October 15-21 (Fall), January 21-27 (Winter) and April 8-14 (Spring).
