MISSION STATEMENT


The mission of the Starr’s Mill High School Cross Country and Track & Field program is to provide a positive student-centered environment in which student athletes will fully participate in and gain valuable life-long lessons. We emphasize a commitment to excellence in the classroom as well as on the athletic fields. Team members will gain life-long lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, ethical behavior, perseverance, commitment, loyalty, self-discipline, accomplishment, cooperation, healthy living, responsibility, and leadership skills.


PHILOSOPHY


Our philosophy is to create a competitive and character driven program for Starr’s Mill High School Cross Country and Track &Field program.  We hope that each athlete will remember how their experience made them a champion both on and off the field. The greatest rewards that athletes will gain on the team will be the rewards that come from being a part of a team. We want each runner to see the improvement that comes from consistent hard work and to value the importance of a commitment. We also want each athlete to know that he/she has achieved because of continued effort and dedication. Participating on an athletic team should be a wonderful experience from which each athlete can always look back and remember the lessons learned, friendships gained and goals achieved.
