The Value of Organized Team Sports for Youth

Participating in youth athletics can teach values and lessons that student athletes can use in their teenage years and throughout their life.   Coaches, teachers, and parents are key influencers when it comes to  providing mentorship and building positive character through sports.  An effective and positive athletic program should build life-long lessons and skills for our student-athletes, including:

  • Discipline
  • Hard Work
  • Sacrifice
  • Teamwork
  • Dealing with Success and Failure
  • Setting and Striving for Goals
  • Value of Practice and Preparation.
  • Overcoming Adversity

At Kinard, we strive to win without making it our primary focus.  The athletic program complements the academic program by emphasizing the importance of work ethic, sportsmanship, and competing with character.  We define success according to the legendary Coach John Wooden

"Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming."  

Most importantly, we expect our athletes and parents to represent our Kinard Community with character and class in an effort to live up to the legacy of our school's namesake, Hal Kinard.
