Fighting On Since 1922

Welcome to Roosevelt Athletics!

The benefit and value of athletic participation in high school is well documented as an integral part of the adolescent developmental process. The National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) further indicates that athletic participation correlates with greater success in academics and success beyond high school (NIAAA, 2013). However, today?s society often places too great of value on winning (a win at all cost mentality that can stifle an athlete?s physical, mental, and social development). Because of this, there is a need to strike a balance in athletic competition to maintain a productive and healthy experience for all.

Roosevelt Athletics is committed to being a model program were all athletes are empowered to compete to the best of their ability with the utmost integrity in athletics, academics, and in life.

We will strive to do this by practicing and living the following Rider Pride core values:

Rider Pride

Passion: always competing, a ‘want to do’ attitude instead of ‘having to do’

Respect: of self, teammates, opponents, officials, and the game

Integrity: participating with honesty to the written and unwritten rules

Determination: commitment, discipline, and sacrifice to finish

Excellence: pursuing ones athletic, academic, and personal best

Sportsmanship

Sportsmanship is an integral aspect of competition at any level. Of course, being a good sport comes easier when the outcome goes our way. Therefore, the true mark of sportsmanship is when the outcome doesn’t go our way. This can be even more challenging when the opponent seems to have no regard to being good sports themselves. So, how do we respond?

Roosevelt athletes, students, parents, and fans can support sportsmanship and healthy competition by following the Game Day Expectations listed below:

  • Show respect to the opponent as they are involved in the same game day experience

  • Be role models of appropriate behavior, poise, and confidence (be in control of your emotions, avoid derogatory comments)

  • Accept judgments of the officials and coaches (it?s not easy, but criticism rarely helps and often worsens the situation)

  • Accept the results of each game; do not make excuses

  • Encourage athletes to keep their perspective in both victory and defeat

  • Dignify mistakes made by athletes; they are giving their best effort and concentration

  • Cheer Loud and Proud for our team to Fight On!
