San Felipe Del Rio CISD’s Athletic Program takes pride in providing opportunities for athletes, teams and coaches to reach their highest potential both on and off the playing field. Our educational commitment is academics first and then athletics. We strive to model and instill in our athletes accountability, responsibility, respect, dedication, commitment to a cause, and the belief that there are no short cuts to success. The team concept in competitive sports provides many opportunities to learn and apply to life skills such as trust, working together, communication, and reaching our physical and mental limitations and abilities.
As the Athletic Director, I believe the ultimate athletic program responsibility is to be a major contributor in the positive development of knowledgeable, honest, hardworking, and morally strong young women and young men.
The athletic program is an extension of the classroom and our educational process. As teachers first and coaches second, we must conduct ourselves in a manner that will instill and teach our athletes accountability, responsibility, respect, dedication, commitment to a cause, and that there are no short cuts to success.
We will promote great sportsmanship in practice and game day competitions at all times. We will stress team accomplishments over individualism, but the individual effort will always be recognized. The team concept in competitive sports provide many opportunities to learn and apply to life skills such as trust, working together, communication, and reaching our physical and mental limitations and abilities. As an athletic program we will win with poise, humility, and respect for our opponents. We will learn from losing such as self-control, renewed work ethic, improved focus, better communication, recognize our weaknesses, and strengths. Our athletes will always be expected to give 100% positive effort in all they do.
Our coaching staff has the responsibility of modeling great character traits and values at all times. As a coaching staff, the behavior we display during preparation, practices, competition, and in passing will be reflected and modeled by our athletes.
San Felipe Del Rio CISD offers a variety of sports activities for young athletes at the JV and Varsity levels such as football, volleyball, basketball, tennis, golf, baseball, softball, soccer, cross-country, cheer, athletic training, track, powerlifting and swimming.
