1 Barrington Middle School Athletics Program Informational Forum Hosted by: Cathy Berei Wednesday, June 1, 2011

2 Welcome Thank You Introductions

3 Program Goals and Philosophy  An inclusive department that offers a wide variety of interscholastic and intramural athletic programs  Athletics are an integral part of the middle school experience and help develop young men and women into becoming positive, contributing members to the community of Barrington and society  It is our overall goal to prepare every student-athlete for participation, competition and success at the next level

4 Program Goals and Philosophy  Athletics can:  Enhance academic success  Offer opportunities to develop athletic ability  Build self-confidence  Build self-discipline and organizational skills  Build character and compassion  Develop citizenship, ethics and values  Foster good sportsmanship, fair play and honesty  Help to learn how to deal with adversity  Teach one how to be a humble loser and a gracious winner

5 Program Goals and Philosophy  We believe children develop differently and at different paces, therefore, we want to provide opportunities:  For students in all grades 5 through 8, emphasizing total school involvement and participation  For students of all physical, mental and social ability levels  That challenge each individual student-athlete at the appropriate physical, mental and social levels

6 Program Goals and Philosophy  Each individual interscholastic and instructional intramural program will teach student-athletes to:  Perform using proper technique, strategies and tactics of the sport  Learn the game rules and fair game play  Develop as athletes specific to their sport  Set appropriate short- and long-term goals  Work cooperatively, positively and how to be a good team member / what it means to be a part of a team
