“Sports activities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have a unique central purpose… a purpose much higher than the development of physical prowess, or even victory itself,”
-The First Presidency, (emphasis added).
“Sportsmanship is the spirituality in athletics, and we believe that the Church athletic program is a spiritual program. If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t continue it, because our purpose is to build men and women of character and spirituality.”
- (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 437).
