Middle School Athletic Philosophy

We believe that athletic participation provides a unique opportunity to fulfill the personal, social and physical needs common to middle school youth. Participation in appropriate competitive athletics increases an individuals’ sense of personal worth, self-discipline, respect and fair play, which can carry over into daily problem solving through life.

Coaches, teachers and parents have a shared responsibility to help guide, nurture and support youth in developing the confidence, skills and attitudes that will enable them to make good choices on and off the playing fields.

Through dedication, effort and practice, our youth will develop athletic skills determination and attitudes that will contribute to personal success as well as team goals. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners who enjoy and participate in a variety of healthful activities.

Central Oregon Middle School Athletic Policies

All students who participate in athletics and extracurricular activities are expected to be positive role models for other students and members of the community. Students should demonstrate good conduct at school and in the community at all times.
