Dear Parents and Students,
The Alexandria Middle Magnet School Athletic Department is committed to the overall vision and mission of the school. The department strives to have its athletes reach their full potential in all areas of the athletic experience academically, socially, and through the realm of competition. Athletes are held to the highest standards in all areas and also to academic requirements. At AMMS we adhere to all requirements set forth by our governing body the Central Louisiana Middle School Athletic League regarding age requirements as well as academic standards.
The athletic department is anxiously anticipating the next season and is excited to have the opportunity to work with you. Student athletes will experience some of the most rewarding moments in their lives, as they become involved in the athletic program at AMMS.
Student athletes are striving to succeed in two demanding areas simultaneously – academics and athletics. Student athletes have the responsibility of developing and working toward an educational goal as well as training in their sport. The athletic department encourages excellence in the classroom stressing STUDENT first in the student athlete.
The coaches at AMMS are professionals. They make judgments and decisions based on what they believe is best for all everyone involved. Team strategy, playing time, other players, etc., should be left to the discretion of the coach. Please do not attempt to confront a coach before, during, or after a game. This time can be emotional for all. Meetings of this nature do not promote resolution therefore should be scheduled at a more appropriate time. Dialogue with the coach by your child is not only encouraged but expected.
