Athletics Mission Statement
It’s important we recognize that sports programs are a means to an end, and not an end in themselves. Athletics provide a tool for teaching many valuable lessons in life. Those lessons include self-control, the value of hard work and practice, sportsmanship regardless of circumstances, consideration of fellow-competitors, commitment, leadership, discipline, and respect for authority. These opportunities for teaching principles of living far exceed the importance of a championship that will soon be forgotten. Adhering to this mission statement, TMA participates in the following athletic programs.
