Royals Philosophy

• Develop responsible student athletes and prepare them for life after high school.
      – Insist athletes are on time – “If you’re early, you’re on time, if you’re on time, you’re late”
      – Be mentally and physically prepared to compete
      – Participate in pre-practice and pre-game preparations
      – Take pride in their facility with general upkeep and maintenance
• Respect the integrity of the game, roles of coaches, umpires and opponents.  Reinforce the tenets of good sportsmanship.
• Expectations are to be ready to work hard in a competitive yet safe environment.   Motivate through positive encouragement and reinforcement.
• Recognize the unique challenge of having a diverse group of athletes with a wide range of abilities and experience.
The team comes first.  We will work to win every game and players may be asked to take on the challenges of other positions or duties.
• Incorporate Community Service as a team to reinforce the high school requirement, but also to foster a greater sense of teamwork and giving back to the community.
