The District Athletic Policy states:


The value of interscholastic athletic competition is multi-faceted and includes many issues beyond the obvious thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. The concepts of teamwork, self-discipline, accepting rules, dealing with adversity, respecting your opponent, respecting the game officials and accepting their decisions, are all ideals found at the core of why interscholastic competition is so essential to the middle school and high school experience. In Cypress -Fairbanks we will continue to demand nothing less than exemplary behavior when it comes to respect and sportsmanship. Victory may, at times, be out of reach, but appropriate behavior never is.



The ultimate goal of this Outline of Expectations is to have a working guideline that will help create the maturity of successful young men through the commitment of the baseball program.  Commitment is defined as the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. As aparent, I am sure that you are committed to raising your child according to the rules, morals, and expectations you believe is best for them.  Likewise, we as coaches, expect everyone involved to have the same level of commitment to the guidelines we believe are best for the program.  Our role as coaches is to provide an opportunity for the athlete to develop whilefulfilling the important task of fitting into a team concept.
