Our Goals ... The primary goals of our athletic program are as follows:
• To provide an athletic program that meets the expressed needs, interest, and abilities of the students, consistent with available facilities, equipment, and quality staff.

• To provide an athletic program that will satisfy both the competitive needs as well as recreational needs of the students.

• To provide equal opportunities for all students.

• To provide an athletic program that will promote the physical well-being and desirable attitudes in leadership and sportsmanship for both the participants and spectators.

• To provide an athletic program that is an integral part of the educational program.

Our Objectives ... The Valley View Student Athlete shall learn:

To work with others ... In our society a person must develop self-discipline, respect for authority, and the spirit of hard work and sacrifice. The team and its objectives must be placed above personal desires.

To be successful ... Our society is very competitive. We do not always win, be we succeed when we continually strive to do so. You learn to accept defeat only by striving to win with earnest dedication. Develop a desire to excel, learn from your failures, and always give your best effort.
To develop sportsmanship ... To accept any defeat like a true sportsman. Knowing we have done our best, we must learn to treat others, as we would have others treat us. We need to develop desirable social traits, including fair play, emotional control, honesty, cooperation, and dependability.

To improve ... Continual improvement is essential to good citizenship. As an athlete, you must establish goals and constantly strive to better yourself in order to reach those goals.

To enjoy athletics ... It is necessary for athletes to enjoy participation and all of the personal rewards to be derived from athletics.

To develop desirable personal health habits ... To be an active, contributing citizen, it is important to obtain a high degree of physical fitness through exercise and good health habits, and to develop the desire to maintain this level of physical fitness after formal competition has been completed.
