Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide an honorable program that is successful on the field as well as the classroom; by having the highest integrity and discipline.

Dear Athlete and Parent,

It is indeed a pleasure to take this opportunity to welcome you to SAMS Athletics. I hope that each one of you will be proud to be a Raven Athlete.

The world of athletics is a great one. It is one of the few areas where a young athlete can develop into becoming a total human being, which is one of the athletic department’s primary objectives.

SAMS coaches are an excellent group of men and women. They will teach you all the skills necessary to perform up to your capabilities. More importantly they will teach you a value system that will enable you to lead a useful and productive life after promotion.

SAMS has a vision of developing great teams and athletes. You can be the next athlete to be a part of that great vision. This will be accomplished only if you listen to your teachers and coaches, and develop the mental discipline necessary to be a fine athlete.

As a student leader, your role is an important one. A student athlete is a true leader within the school and community. In this regard, I ask that you maintain the highest standards of sportsmanship during all athletic contests.

An important component of your responsibility is to learn and respect the rules of the game and the decisions of the contest officials who administer them. In addition, it is important to extend courtesy and respect to opposing students, coaches and fans.

In all of your responsibilities, it is important that you maintain dignity and poise. Throughout your seasons, you will be a spokesperson for educationally sound athletics when you represent your school. Your actions should remind us that sports are meant to be fun. Your display of citizenship will show the most positive things about you and your school.

I hope that the upcoming year is rewarding for you.
