SportsLeader Virtue of the Week
One pillar of the SportsLeader program is a weekly virtue that we incorporate into our athletic practices and throughout our school community. Every week, we will share them here to encourage the students to take the virtue into their homes as well!

Our virtue this week is ASSERTIVE - The strength to be characterized by bold and confident action. Being a leader in any field of life requires some ASSERTIVENESS. You have to step up and make things happen, not wait around for everyone else to get the job done. You have to want it for yourself and for the team.
