Philosophy & Objectives
The Athletic Philosophy of the Romeoville Recreation Department is to provide an environment of positive reinforcement through a controlled learning experience.
This can best be accomplished by our coaches combining the following:
Establishing a competitive yet fun atmosphere
Instruction of the fundamentals
Insuring participation for all
Stressing the importance of team work
Teaching social and leadership skills
The Romeoville Recreation Department youth sport objectives are:
To help young people develop physically by learning individual sporting skills and improving their physical conditioning.
To help young people grow socially, by learning to cooperate in a competitive context, by learning sportsmanship and by developing friendships with both young people and adults.
To help young people mature emotionally by developing self-confidence, self-control, and self-discipline. To teach responsibility, commitment, and a sense of leadership.
To provide young people with the opportunity to have safe supervised fun!
