Athletics enable young students to develop physically so that they may have a mens sana in corpore sano (sound mind in healthy body). Athletics also enable students to practice self-discipline by training and following the rules and regulations of the coach. A sense of accomplishment is always present in athletics. Students can set personal goals and strive to meet the challenge of reaching them. Athletic participation allows a spirit of competition to develop which is very important in today’s competitive world, as well as the development of sportsmanship in winning or losing with graciousness.
Surely one goal of any athletic program is to instill pride that students must do their best at all times. There is no place in the world of sports or business for people that do not enter every phase of their life with the intention of giving their best effort.
Our athletic program does not put its final emphasis on winning…that is for the professionals. Hopefully, it will help our students to grow and mature and lead to self-discipline, desire and the competitive drive that will help form athletes into future leaders.
