Statement of Coaching Beliefs (Athletic Schedule Below)
The coaching staff at Lakewood Ranch would like to welcome you to our program. We look forward to coaching and teaching you skills and sportsmanship. The interscholastic sports program is one of a number of experiences and programs available at Lakewood Ranch to assist students in developing important skills. These skills range from teamwork, work ethic, sportsmanship, to fair play. Winning and losing is secondary to the manner in which athletes conduct themselves on and off the court, field, or track. We understand that all athletes do not perform at the same level, but maximum effort, commitment, and a hard work attitude are required for any and all team members.
Student-athlete as Leaders
Participation in an interscholastic program is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. As leaders and as highly visible representatives of Lakewood Ranch, all student-athletes have the obligation to represent themselves in an exemplary manner. Dishonesty, unsportsmanlike behavior, or behavior unbecoming a student-athlete will not be tolerated. This also means that a student-athlete who is enrolled in a Physical Education class must participate to the best of their ability in that class. Also student-athletes are subject to all Manatee Municipal School Board policies and the policies of the Florida Athletic Association. Willful violation of these policies will result in disciplinary action by the coach and, if necessary, by the administration of the school. To be eligible for interscholastic competition, a student-athlete must have passed a minimum of four classes, no failed more than one, and have a grade point average of 2.0 or better for the most immediate grading period. The student-athlete needs to complete all homework and schoolwork missed during game days.
