Coastal Athletic League Mission Statement

Basketball gameThe mission of the Coastal Athletic League is to provide opportunities for educating students in physical fitness, character development, and socialization skills through athletic programs that foster teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship and respect for opponents and officials.

It is the top priority of the athletic directors at each school to maintain an appropriate middle school focus in their athletic programs. While contests are quite competitive, sportsmanship, and good behavior are always our highest priority. We expect a positive example to be demonstrated by the coaches, parents, and spectators when they attend our events. They should exemplify the standards of sportsmanship and positive support we work to instill in our students.
