Goals of Athletics Education

The goal of our sports programs is to give each individual an enjoyable experience in the program. This is done by allowing them to compete at their own level. Certain teams are designed to give equal playing time to all participating students so they can enjoy the game, learn how to play the game through the rules and proper techniques, and further their skills through practice time and game experience.

Other teams are designed to give students the skills, enjoyment, knowledge, and competition that will prepare them with the necessary experience and skills to compete at the high school level.
