CMS Athletic Mission Statement


Craig Middle School aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:

  • Is coached using the principles of Positive Coaching

  • Has fun at practices and games

  • Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance

  • Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the playing field

  • Learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player

We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. It is our goal to provide every coach with the tools to succeed as a Positive Coach. We are committed to creating a positive culture in which coaches parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission.
