Character Education

  • Character Education

    Attention all Boys JV Soccer players. A big part of being a successful soccer program is being a good teammate and demonstrating good sportsmanship both on and off the field. One of the requirements this year is to memorize a different quote each week starting with the first week of tryouts. You need to have the quote memorized, word for word prior to the start of practice on Monday. During the week we will discuss the quote as well as spotlight, which is to point out times that our teammates have demonstrated the theme of the week either on or off the playing field.
