Athletics Philosophy

The MET's Athletics Program is offered to students from 1st through 12th grades and offers a variety of sports that students can choose to participate in throughout the year.

Our Mission

The mission of the MET Athletics Program is to support the academic, social-emotional, and physical development of our students through teamwork, sportsmanship, and competition.

We believe that participation in athletics is a valuable component of a student’s education. Students learn teamwork, problem-solving skills, self­-discipline, and self­-confidence.

We expect that through the development of these skills, our student-­athletes will become confident, capable, ethical, and contributing members of the school community.

Our Vision

The MET Athletics program enriches the lives of our student-athletes.

Our young people incorporate healthy activity and habits into their lives and develop into their best selves as students, athletes, teammates, and citizens of the world. Our student-athletes work collaboratively to reach performance goals, persevere through failure with resiliency, and compete with integrity. Through fitness and sports, our student-athletes embrace healthy living, develop confidence, and go on to lead productive and positive lives.

Priorities of the Athletics Department

The MET seeks to develop a culture that values extracurricular participation and student success across a variety of activities and programs.

We aim to:

Core Values

Teamwork: All student-athletes are positive contributors to the team. Each teammate is responsible, accountable, and dependable.

Sportsmanship: All student-athletes demonstrate sportsmanship by respecting coaches, teammates, opponents, officials, and the game, demonstrating grace in victory and in defeat.

Commitment: All student-athletes demonstrate the commitment and work ethic necessary to be successful. Every student has the opportunity to participate in the athletics program.

Academic Success: Student-athletes are held to high standards in both athletics and academics. They develop time-management skills to balance training and study.

Healthy Lifestyles: Student-athletes each maintain a healthy lifestyle, making good choices around nutrition, sleep, and the balance of activities. They maintain a chemically free lifestyle to achieve optimal performance.

School Pride: Student-athletes demonstrate pride, respect, and commitment to their teams, schools, and community through effort and a positive attitude.

Leadership: Student-athletes motivate teammates to achieve their goals.

Transportation to all games is by school bus or van. Students will always be accompanied by the coach on the bus. Team members are required to travel to and from games with the team. In unusual circumstances, with written parental permission and approval by the Athletic Director, a student may drive to and from a game.

All students must return to school with the team, unless picked up by a parent/legal guardian, or if there is written permission to go home with another adult. All parents must follow the sign-out procedures to take their child from any away games.

After week-day away games, the MET will only offer transportation services back to the MET. Parents will be responsible for providing pick-up for their children at the school. The Athletic Department will send out an email with the approximate arrival time.

During competitions that occur during the weekend, parents will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the games. It's the students' and parents' responsibility to arrive to the games on time to participate.
