At Destin High School, our mission is to create a transformative experience for our high school girls’ basketball team, where every player feels empowered, valued, and inspired to reach their full potential. Through unwavering dedication, integrity, and teamwork, we aim to foster a culture of excellence that extends far beyond the basketball court.
1. Skill Development: We commit to providing our players with the highest quality coaching and training, empowering them to improve their basketball skills and excel in the game. We believe that hard work, determination, and perseverance are the keys to success.
2. Sportsmanship and Respect: We instill the values of sportsmanship and respect in our players, promoting fair play, humility, and graciousness in victory and defeat. Our athletes will be ambassadors of good sportsmanship, both on and off the court.
3. Team Unity: We cherish the strength of unity and believe that each player’s unique talents contribute to the collective success of the team. By fostering a supportive and inclusive environment, we build strong bonds that enhance teamwork and camaraderie.
4. Academic Excellence: We emphasize the importance of academic achievement, encouraging our athletes to be dedicated students as well as skilled players. Striving for excellence in both academics and athletics prepares them for success in life beyond high school.
5. Leadership and Character: We aim to develop leaders of character who exemplify courage, resilience, and integrity. Our players will be role models within the school and the broader community, embodying values that inspire others to greatness.
6. Community Engagement: We recognize the significance of giving back to our community. Through volunteer work and outreach initiatives, we aim to make a positive impact and inspire others to join us in making a difference.
7. Mental Toughness: We believe in the power of a strong mindset and equip our players with the tools to overcome challenges and setbacks. Mental toughness will not only benefit them on the court but also in navigating life’s obstacles.
8. Pursuit of Excellence: We embrace the pursuit of excellence as a continuous journey, setting ambitious goals and pushing ourselves to improve every day. Our commitment to improvement fuels our passion for the game and propels us to greater achievements.
Our team will stand united in our dedication to these principles. We strive to create a legacy of empowered champions who leave an indelible mark on our school, community, and the world at large. Together, we are stronger, and together, we rise to become exceptional athletes, exceptional students, and exceptional human beings.
We have a new way of making sure that all of our Destin High School student athletes are in compliance with FHSAA requirements.EVERY student will now submit the paperwork required via the online portal at AthleticClearance.com as coaches will no longer be accepting the paper forms in person. Please see the instruction in the PDF below for help on how to submit all of the required paperwork via the website.
Additionally, students will be required to complete three short courses (links listed below) and upload the course completion certificates into the Athletic Clearance Portal. Students will receive the certificates after they complete each course. We suggest doing that BEFORE starting the Athletic Clearance process.
Once all documents have been submitted, they will be reviewed by a school administrator. Once reviewed, you will receive an email stating your student has been cleared to participate or further documentation is required. Students will NOT be allowed to tryout or practice until all required paperwork is uploaded & clearance has been given. You will only need to do this once a year and if applicable, can be used for other sports.
