Athletic Philosophy

The total development of the student is the focus of a responsible athletic program.

Successful programs provide for

physical, mental, social, and emotional growth. 

We believe that:

  • The middle school age athletes are at a unique stage of development.
  • Development, being able to learn from experience, making choices about future sports involvement, and having a positive learning experience are important priorities.
  • Participation for as many youngsters as possible is desired.
  • The program emphasis should be directed toward skill mastery, team concepts, cooperation with peers, and the fun of involvement and fair play.
  • Athletics are an extension of the classroom.
The learning outcomes we seek for our athletes:
  • The development of confidence and poise.
  • Game concepts.
  • Learning from winning or losing.
  • Total effort.
  • Friendships.
  • Positive behavior.
  • Sportsmanship.
