The program is open to all students in the Mifflin and Juniata County School Districts ages 6-14.
Athletes are expected to protect and keep clean practice facilities, always display proper decorum, and be respectful and positive with communication to teammates, coaches, officials, and parents. Athletes should be where they are supposed to be, when they are supposed to be, doing what they are supposed to be doing. Try to be the best you can be – not the best of all. Discover your God given gifts, develop them and use them. Help your teammates and competitors to be the best they can be. Never, never, never give up, pick yourself up and keep trying. Set realistic, measurable, challenging, attainable goals and work toward achieving them. Use positive affirmations and avoid negative thoughts. When someone is speaking – pay attention!
Always have water available to hydrate (come to practice and meets hydrated). Be dressed for all possible weather conditions. Identify dangerous situations and adapt.
A person is not measured by victory or defeat, but by how the pick themselves up after failure or how they act after victory! Your worth is never determined by your performance, but by your intrinsic value to all of us.
