The mission of the Rosemount Middle School Athletic Program will be to develop, teach, and inspire our student athletes with sportsmanship, leadership, commitment, teamwork and integrity.
The vision in each sport will be to develop our student athletes into productive, contributing citizens of our community and society. The emphasis will focus on providing our students a series of experiences, which will promote wholesome and friendly participation, improved playing skills, good sportsmanship, new friends, and better community relationships. The Middle School athletics program will provide athletes with a positive foundation for their development within the program; creating allegiance between the middle school and high school and a positive feeling of school loyalty and pride.
