We believe that athletic participation provides a unique opportunity to fulfill man of 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 hem 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.
