Mission Statement

The mission of GLOBE Athletics is to improve a student’s self-confidence and overall health by participating in sports. Our coaching staff is committed to fostering decision-making, leadership and personal skills of each student-athlete. We believe that athletics enhances the qualities needed to be responsible and socially involved members of the community. We aspire for athletic participation to be a valuable learning experience that will develop well-rounded students and leaders.

Community          Respect          Empathy         Sustainability         Trust

The GLOBE Academy is a charter school, therefore we are responsible for funding our own athletic programs. Parents of our student-athletes are expected to provide transportation to practices/games, pay a team fee of $150 or more and provide a sports physical to the school. Each player is expected to attend practices and maintain a B average or higher in each of their classes.
