YOUTH SPORTS AND FITNESS

 



 Mission Statement:

 The Fort Huachuca Youth Sports and Fitness Program is committed to providing each child/youth with an enjoyable learning experience.  The foundations of the Programs are good sportsmanship and creating a safe environment where children and youth can gain a better understanding of each respective sport.

 We understand that the primary reason young athletes participate in sports is to have fun while competing with each other.  It is not all about winning or losing.

 We believe every child/youth matters and should be given the opportunity to learn and improve his or her knowledge, skills, and abilities.  We are committed to providing a safe place where our children and youth can participate in sports and improve in their athletic abilities.

 We believe that while competition is important, the greater value lies in competing with honor, practicing good sportsmanship, and being gracious in victory and defeat.  Sportsmanship is expected of everyone involved with the Fort Huachuca Youth Sports and Fitness Programs—from the coaches, players, parents, and referees.
