Keep the rules

Keep faith with my teammates

Keep my temper

Keep myself fit

Keep a stout heart in defeat

 Keep my pride under in victory

Keep a sound soul, a clean mind, and a healthy body


VFW Baseball "The Student Athlete's Code of Sportsmanship"  

1. We will respect all aspects of the game: ourselves, all coaches, all officials, teammates, opponents, fans, and the rules; regardless of the behavior of others.

2. We will support our teammates and be team players.

3. We will recognize who and what we are representing.

4. We will show no bias, no prejudice, or preferential treatment on or off the field.

5. We will take responsibility for our own behavior.

6. We will be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
