The total development of the student is the focus of a responsible athletic program.
Successful programs provide for
physical, mental, social, and emotional growth.

The learning outcomes we seek for our athletes:
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 development of confidence and poise.
- Game concepts.
- Learning from winning or losing.
- Total effort.
