Athletics: Winning the Right Way

Shorecrest Chargers Athletics educates students in "Winning the Right Way" --

In every moment there is an opportunity to lead, serve and impact others by one’s actions, one’s demeanor and one’s effort.

Levels of Competition and Program Development

List of 4 items.

  • Varsity: Competing and Winning at the Highest Athletic Level

    Objective: To raise the level of commitment and development through focused training, competitive drive and winning. Competing and winning at the highest athletic level is the goal of Varsity sports. Student–athletes at this level will have access to coaching and training resources to promote team success and optimize individual development and performance.

    Impact: Athletics is a privilege, not a right. There are no game playtime guarantees for Varsity level student-athletes. Hardwork, dedication and performance are key components to increase chances of individual and team success. Seize the opportunity when given the chance to perform.
  • Junior Varsity: Preparing for and Developing Competition

    Objective: To raise the level of commitment and development through focused training, competitive drive and winning. Developing and preparing student-athletes to compete at the highest athletic level is the goal of JV sports. Student–athletes at this level will have access to coaching and training resources to promote team success and optimize individual development and performance.

    Impact: There is no predetermined game playtime allocation for JV level student-athletes. However, the goal of JV is to provide practice discipline and practical game experience for focused development of all players. Consistent with Varsity expectations, hardwork, dedication, and performance are key components to increase chances of individual and team success.
  • Middle School: The stepping-stone to JV & Varsity athletics

    Objective: Skill development through team dynamics and competitive play. Each student-athlete will get an opportunity to experience practice and game situations through committed action, response and result activities.

    Impact: Students who participate in MS sports are able to experience competition on a regular basis in a learning and encouraging environment. Development, growth, and maturity are key focuses of this educational level and MS athletics emphasizes the importance of supporting others through individual growth. This is the stepping-stone to JV/Varsity athletics.
  • Intramurals: Growth through participation and encouragement

    Objective: To build an athletic foundation through structured and directive play. This introductory level is specifically designed to promote psychomotor and cognitive skill development, build confidence, and create a love for activity in a fun learning environment.

    Impact: Students who participate in intramurals are able to experience challenges, obstacles, teamwork and success in a safe, nurturing environment. Growth is cultivated through participation and encouragement.
