- GO MARINERS!!!
Our organization will make every effort to make sure that every child with the desire to participate gets the opportunity to play or cheer, without regard to prior experience or athletic ability.
We are committed to instilling Honesty, Loyalty, Integrity, Teamwork, Discipline,Sportsmanship, Respect, Leadership, Trust and Commitment in our young participants. We believe these values and virtues are important to their growth and to them becoming active members of our community and society.
We will instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat,the importance of commitment and the spirit of community. Our Scholar Athlete Recognition program is to directly underscore the importance of academic achievement among athletes,and by doing so, it will prepare them for the challenges of high school and collegiate environments.
These goals will be achieved through organizing our dedicated volunteers, caring parents, and business associates who wish to partner with our great youth sport program.
