The Pledge



The Pledge to Compete Honorably

Compete: To strive against another or others to attain a goal, such as an advantage or a victory

Honor: Honesty, fairness, or integrity in one’s beliefs and actions; a source of credit or distinction

 Competing Honorably:  Striving against others to attain a goal, while exhibiting honesty, fairness, and integrity through one’s choices and actions

The Pledge:

I pledge to compete honorably in athletics, education, and as a professional. I pledge to be the best that I can be through my everyday choices and actions on and off the field. I pledge to have a consistent awareness of the opportunity to become a better person. I choose to acknowledge failure and learn from it. I choose to exude positivity because I want to, not because I have to. I recognize a coach’s time and efforts are fundamental in the process of becoming a better competitor and person. I appreciate my training space and every arena of competition. I respect and honor all opponents, because without them there is nothing for the true competitor to thrive off of.  Sportsmanship is my highest priority.

In action, I am aware of reaction. In moments of weakness, I prove my strength. In moments of pressure, I realize my true character. I am entitled only to what I have earned. I recognize that it is a privilege to train and compete. I take sole responsibility for my actions. Regardless of potential influence from others (parents, coaches, friends, teammates, family), I know that I have the power to make the righteous choice and act accordingly. I pledge to compete honorably.

Compete. Honor. Inspire.
