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. Team first, individual second…life lessons taught through athletics. Seize the opportunity when given the chance to perform.
  • Junior Varsity: Developing and preparing for competition at the highest level

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

This is the stepping-stone to JV/Varsity athletics.
