Athletic Philosophy

Statement of Philosophy
Athletics play a vital role in the life of our students. Young people learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics.  Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program.  Athletics also play an important part in helping the individual student develop a healthy body.  Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students, spectators, as well as participants develop pride in their school.

The intra-district athletic program shall be conducted in accordance with existing Florence Unified Board of Education policies, rules, and regulations.  While the Board of Education takes great pride in winning, it does not condone “winning at any cost” and discourages any and all pressures which might tend to neglect good sportsmanship and good mental health.  At all times the athletic program must be conducted in such a way so as to justify it as an educational activity.

Sportsmanship Pre-Game Message

Sportsmanship Pre-Game Message

The highest potential in sports is achieved when all athletes and spectators are committed to pursuing victory with honor, and everyone embodies the six core pillars of respect, trustworthiness, responsibility, caring, fairness, and citizenship. 

Please understand that all games at Circle Cross Ranch S.T.E.M. Academy will be played under these guidelines, and any acts of un-sportsman like behavior will not be tolerated. 

As a courtesy to teams, the coaches, athletes, and administration; it would be appreciated that all cheering from fans and both schools remain respectful, and positive.  We also request that all spectators and teams are quiet during free throws to ensure that the athletes are able to concentrate.
