Athletic Philosophy

At Mt. Anthony Union MS/HS we understand and appreciate the importance of athletics in the overall education of our student-athletes. Experiences teach values such as hard work, commitment, leadership, discipline, teamwork, and physical fitness, all within a framework of academic excellence. Participation contributes to the physical, emotional and social health of our students, and promotes a sense of unity and cooperation among athletes, the student body and the larger school community.

MAU has a tradition of success as measured by wins and championships, and winning is a natural goal. Our teams will strive to win, but emphasis will be placed on effort, improvement, respect for coaches, teammates, opponents, and officials, and learning to win graciously and lose with dignity. Winning is emphasized more strongly at the varsity level, but never at the expense of healthy attitudes, values, and perspective. At sub-varsity levels, winning remains a goal, but is subordinate to participation and skill development. Above all, we want all of our athletes to have a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
