Academics, Citizenship, & Athletics: The Triple-Threat to Success
The MISSION of the University City Athletic Program is to provide opportunities and experiences for ALL students to develop personal skills, including:
Respect for self and others
Ability to take positive risks
Appreciation of one’s talents and weaknesses
Recognition of the value of physical, academic, and aesthetic pursuits
Understanding of teamwork and sharing of common goals
Realization of the importance of life skills
Positively promote physical fitness, sportsmanship, and character
Decrease negative risk behavior (drugs, alcohol, illegal substances)
Awareness of the diversity in cultural backgrounds
Participants will also build the self-worth and integrity necessary to be able to cope with future successes and failures. Participants will also gain the qualities of realistic goal setting, positive interdependence, and moral judgment. The athletic program creates an avenue of enrichment, entertainment, and proud association for parents and community members. The program will strive to enable students to contribute positively, responsibly, and ethically within today’s global society, now and in the future.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. --John Quincy Adams
