PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETICS:

It is the belief of the Brewer School Department that interscholastic athletics play an important role in the total educational development of our youth. Athletics allow the student to combine academic and athletic skills in a setting that enables the student to achieve his/her maximum potential. Competition in sports teaches a young person how to function as an individual within a team in such a manner that both the team and the individual benefit. Competition under proper supervision teaches the athlete how to maintain a positive attitude while experiencing the emotions associated with winning and losing.
