Student Spotlight 2012-13

CAA teams and student-athletes are involved in many activities away from the field of play. In an effort to recognize this, the "Student-Athlete Spotlight" will feature the CAA schools throughout the school year highlighting various activities that CAA student-athletes may be involved with in the community and/or on campus.

Student-Athlete Mission Statement
"As CAA Student-Athletes we commit ourselves to Be The Difference. As leaders in the community we personify and instill sportsmanship, perseverance, and compassion to establish a legacy based on today's excellence and tomorrow's success."

Sportsmanship Pledge

I am a CAA Student-Athlete.
I respect myself.
Through respecting myself,
I respect my opponent.
Through respecting my opponent,
I respect the game.
Through respecting the game,
I respect the officials.
Through respecting the officials,
I respect the outcome.
My example, in victory or defeat, nurtures respect in others.
Will you follow my lead?
