Our school believes that promoting sports involvement at this level will not only develop sport skills, but will develop a sense of responsibility, involvement, and social skills.
Our coaches prepare students for a high school level. Coaches also expect them to develop socially, mentally, and physically. While teaching students, these skills, they are also taught sportsmanship, self-discipline, and team work.
