PHYLOSOPHY

It is a unique experience for our students to play for a school team.  The main goal of our program is to provide for our students experiences to develop positive habits and attitudes.

Acknowledging the intrinsic value in sports, our department provides each student with the opportunity to participate in different school activities and events.  Even though our teams will make the best effort to win, the main emphasis will be to promote talent and develop athletic skills.  We have a system to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to play, as long as the student complies with team rules.  The teams and categories have a moderate emphasis on results and a strong emphasis in promoting effort and good attitude.

When the school participates in highly competitive events, a technical council is assembled to form a Varsity Team, deciding criteria to select students and making the selection.  For the Varsity Team the emphasis on good results is much stronger, although there is always an important emphasis in effort and good attitude.
