The object of this club will seek to implant in the youth of our community ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and courage.
This objective will be achieved by providing recreational activity for as many of our youth as the organizational personnel deems necessary and as parental participation will allow. All shall bear in mind that exceptional athletic skill and the winning of games are secondary and that the formation of sound character is of prime importance.
