At Dysart Middle School, we believe in teaching the fundamental skills of football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, cross country, baseball and softball in a competitive and nurturing atmosphere. Athletic competition of interscholastic age student athletes should be fun and should also be a significant part of a sound educational program, embodying high standards of ethics and sportsmanship, while developing good character and other important life skills. Essential elements of character building are intrinsic in the concept of sportsmanship and the six core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship (the “Six Pillars of Character”). The highest potential of sports is achieved through the T.E.A.M. concept (Teaching, Enforcing, Advocating and Modeling these values) and by committing to the ideal of pursuing victory with honor. Good-faith efforts to honor the words and spirit of this Code will improve the quality of our programs.
Most importantly, we want a large turnout for our athletes to ensure they feel supported and receive the true competitive experience! We want exemplary sportsmanship from players and fans, who are proud to be an Eagle!
