Our Elite Athletes ASPIRE code
Attitude – A positive attitude is essential in overcoming obstacles to help me improve and give my best. My positive attitude is a key ingredient to success and leadership.
Sportsmanship – I recognise that sport is greater than the individual; that cheating reduces the stature of sport and all who love it; that class, race and creed are never factors in the attitude of true sports people and those who respect the virtues and values of sport.
Pride – Pride drives me when the temptation is to settle for something less. I am proud to have been chosen to represent their school.
Individual responsibility – I alone am responsible for my performance, but I will be generous in acknowledging the support of others.
Respect – I respect sport, the efforts of my competitors, my team mates and officials.
Express – I have an opinion and will express my view with thought and consideration to others. In showing my emotions I do so with individuality and, where possible, good humour and humility. Together we aspire to achieve our highest level of performance and conduct.
