Visit East Valley Sports to Order Your Varsity Jacket!
You may now visit East Valley Sports (6306 East Main Street, Mesa, 85205) to inquire about ordering an Arete Prep Varsity Jacket. We have redesigned the Varsity Letter that was distributed at Fall Sports Awards. IF YOU ARE ORDERING A JACKET, please contact Coach Conklin to receive the new letter.

Jackets are dress code approved but may only be worn by the owner. 

Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop for Middle School Athletes 1/9 

Arete Prep's third PCA workshop will be held for ALL (fall, winter, spring) Middle School student athletes. It will take place on Wednesday, January 9th from 2:30-3:30.  

All 2018-19 Middle School Charger Student Athletes are expected to attend. The workshop will take place in the gymnasium.

"Becoming a Triple Impact Competitor"
This workshop for student athletes teaches them how to become a  Triple-Impact Competitor, impacting sport on three levels by working to improve oneself, teammates, and the game as a whole. Improving oneself draws on the principle of  Mastery of Sport, where emphasis lies on effort, learning, and bouncing back from mistakes; improving teammates ties to  Filling Emotional Tanks with the right mix of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism; and improving the game as a whole means advancing the sportsmanshiop values by  Honoring the Game
Our hope is that student athletes leave the workshop equipped with the information and inspiration necessary to lead in our school's hallways and use their influence to set examples throughout the community that  generate pride and support for our school's athletics program.
