WELCOME TO WMS Athletics!
The Wasilla Middle School Athletic Department's goal is to provide a program that compliments the academic programs in our school. The coaching staff strives to instill responsibility and discipline that will benefit students on the field of competition, in the classroom, and in their daily lives. Our diverse offerings strive to develop each student's self-esteem, unique talents and their sense of social responsibility. It is expected that disciplined effort and practice will pay off on the field of competition, in the classroom, and in the conduct of one's life.
We believe that competitive sports contribute significantly to our students' well being. By participating athletically, students learn to work effectively in groups, manage time well, and develop team spirit, all while fostering a healthy desire to excel. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and winning and losing gracefully are expected outcomes by participants on each team. Athletics play an important role in assisting students to develop self-esteem, respect for others, honesty, responsibility, a sense of justice, and strong ethical values to carry on into their future. Athletic competition contributes to school spirit and helps both spectators and participants to develop pride in their school and to practice the qualities of good sportsmanship. Athletes also gain an appreciation for lifelong fitness and activity.
