We at Spring Oaks Middle school believe athletics should compliment and be an integral part of the school academic curriculum to create a well rounded student. Athletics teaches students the life-long skills of good sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and respect. It also encourages students to continue a life-long habit of maintaining good physical fitness.
In addition, the Athletic program helps to promote school pride, spirit and healthy competition within the local community.
Athletic Goals and Objectives:
1. Learn teamwork - develop self-discipline, respect for authority, and the spirit of hard work; place the team and its objectives higher than personal desires.
