GW Graham Athletics Philosophy: Education through athletics

GW Graham Athletics is committed to excellence in athletics while supporting the educational goals set out by School District #33. We meet student-athletes at their individual skill levels and educational needs and provide a challenging environment for skill development in both team and individual sports. Grizzlies Athletics is connected to the whole student: academically, socially, emotionally and physically through intentional preparation and planning throughout the school day and season. We focus on creating opportunities for all student-athletes to develop skills through individual instruction, peer interaction and competition. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that our student-athletes’ efforts to be their best will lead them to succeed.

GW Graham Athletics Vision Statement: Create the culture

The Graham athletic department seeks to create a culture that inspires, motivates, and challenges all participants to leave their environment in a better place than how they found it.

GW Graham Athletics Mission Statement: Create the environment

The GW Graham athletic department will work daily to ensure all individuals associated with Graham Athletics (coaches, staff, student-athletes, alumni and parents) will value character traits developed through athletic participation. We expect all participants to; respect themselves and others, demonstrate loyalty, be good teammates and put the team before themselves, handle failure like they handle success, have school pride, passion, spirit, have a strong work ethic, be honest, and ALWAYS work hard to become 1% better every day as a member of our community of schools.
