We believe that athletic competition is a necessary process for the development of the student/athlete. We believe that the purpose of athletics is to assist the student/athlete in developing playing skills, respecting coaches, teammates, and opponents, respecting rules and officials, maintaining good health and physical fitness, practicing good sportsmanship, and remembering that participation is a privilege and carries responsibilities. The purpose of the 7th grade team sports is developmental in nature. Regular season scores are not recorded. Playoffs will be determined by a random drawing. The purpose of the 8th grade team sports is more competitive. Regular season results will be used to determine playoff ranking.
