Coaching Philosophy at Dutchman Creek
The coaches at Dutchman Creek work to develop the physical, scholastic, and social potential of our student-athletes. We view interscholastic athletics as an extension of the educational process where lessons on teamwork, work ethic, sportsmanship, and other life lessons are learned. We employ sound fundamental coaching strategies developed by attending coaching clinics, observing high school and college practices, and talking with colleagues about the coaching profession. We believe each Dutchman Creek athlete has a role on the team; from a front line player to a back-up role each person is important to the total team concept and we coach that concept to our athletes. We also believe in winning and will play every game to win, but will not compromise our belief in sportsmanship or do anything which might embarrass Dutchman Creek Middle School in order to win.
Dutchman Creek will be a member of the York County Middle School Athletic Conference (YCMSAC) and the SC High School League (SCHSL) and will field teams in all conference sports which include: 7th and 8th grade girls volleyball, 7th and 8th grade football, 7th and 8th grade girls basketball, 7th and 8th grade boys basketball, wrestling, boys track, girls track, and softball. We will also have Fall and Winter cheerleading.
