Welcome to Buccaneer Athletics, We are so thrilled that you are partnering with us to support our student-athletes! I have been involved in the Buccaneer Athletic program for 28-years and couldn’t be more excited to begin another season. As a former teacher, middle school, junior varsity and varsity head coach, assistant athletic director, assistant principal and now as the building principal, I have developed a clear understanding about the important role high school athletics plays in the growth and development of our young adults. The lessons learned through athletics are some of the best taught and carry on for a lifetime. Your role in this success is HUGE. As a parent and/or spectator, our coaches and athletes need your 100% support at ALL times … not just when our programs are winning. The unconditional support that you provide behind the scenes and while at events will be felt by our kids and carry onto the playing arena’s. In order for our studentathletes to be the most successful, we ALL need to work TOGETHER at all time. High school athletics can be extremely competitive and no one wants to win more than our athletes but we need to remember that they are KIDS … 14 – 18 year old kids who are doing their very best at all times and will sometimes not be on the winning end of a contest. Our coaches work extremely hard to prepare our athletes for competition but they too, cannot actual play for them. Our role as the adults is to always remain POSITIVE and SUPPORTATIVE … never get into the conversation of questioning why or why not something happened, if a mistake has been made, our kids know that and have already beaten themselves up for it. Just continue to love your athlete as they ride the rollercoaster of emotions that takes place throughout each season … our kids are under a great amount of pressure to compete, keep up with their academic success all while facing the day-to-day obstacles of growing up. THANK YOU in advance for choosing to support our student-athletes, coaches and programs. You will enjoy your time watching and supporting our programs, I have no doubt about that!
