Coaches are constant with reminders that the school work comes first. We want our athletes to be their very best in the classroom too!
We ask our athletes to continually conduct themselves in a manner that earns the respect of their teammates and classmates. During the week, on weekends, in the classroom, on the field/court/track. We are seeing more and more leadership traits from so many young athletes. This growth will be a powerful advantage to our athletes in the competitive world they live in!
