ATHLETICS

 


DMS Athletics Philosophy:

Middle school students are experiencing a time in their lives of tremendous growth and immense change. As they deal with this they are often overly excited, confused, argumentative, curious, erratic, sensitive, moody, and self-conscious. They are searching for identity and acceptance from their peers. Through middle school sports students learn fair play and sportsmanship. They are to participate, be given chances, and be allowed to make mistakes. They are to learn to appreciate teamwork, understand that hard work and perseverance lead to success, and learn how to deal with coaches, referees, opponents, peers, and themselves. 

 

We want our athletes to learn how to:

  • *Compete, because we want them to compete for the best jobs someday.
  • *Lead, because our country is relying on them to be the next generation of leaders.
  • *Advocate for themselves, because someday they are going to have to stand up for themselves and do what they know is right.
  • *Fail, because someday they will be forced to face and overcome adversity.
  • *Create a great team culture, because we want them to build strong family cultures.
  • *Demonstrate integrity, because others are watching and learning from them right now.
  • *Commit and sacrifice, because we need them to become great parents.
  • *Be accountable, disciplined, selfless, and mentally tough athletes so as parents they will know how to raise young people who are the same way.
