OUR CORE VALUES ARE WHAT WE TEACH IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THE TASKS THAT WILL LEAD US TO SUCCESS; BOTH IN SPORT AND IN LIFE. THEY ARE THE CULTURE OUR PROGRAM OPERATES UNDER, AND BEHAVIORS ALL MEMBERS OF THE PYRAMID WILL LEARN TO DEVELOP, CULTIVATE, AND APPLY.
We aim for excellence. Excellence does not come in the form of losing or winning, but in the proper application of everything we have learned; in taking pride in our body of work. Being aware of the circumstances and using both mind and body to assess and conquer our obstacles.
You cannot be successful without integrity. What you do when no one is watching defines you. Are you completing tasks to the best of your ability? Are you cutting corners? Are you pushing yourself hard enough so that you are getting better or are you pushing just enough to stay comfortable?
Being accountable is the first step in working towards any type of success. Accountability is honesty with oneself. Identifying our mistakes, our shortcomings, our faults, and doing what is necessary to correct them. Without this, we can never truly get better. We must be humble enough to know what are weaknesses are, accepting of the mistakes we make, and determined enough to work towards making them better.
