    Please Remember.....      
     
     No matter what the season here at Onteora or on another sport's team outside of school, please try to remember that winning is always great, but the Onteora Athletic Department knows that doing your best will not always achieve a winning score.  It's about the effort put in.  We feel it is very important to teach our athletes to always do their best win or lose.  We want our students to be proud to be athletes no matter what the outcome of a contest is. To help with that, please try to remember Just a few rules....
       
       * The Referees/Umpires are the proper authorities to make contest
          decisions, not students, parents, or even our beloved coaches.
          Although we might disagree with their calls on occasions,
          please adhere to this rule always!
     
       *  Spectators, student athletes, and coaches must recognize that their
           conduct plays an important role in establishing the reputation of
           their school and that their positive actions will relate directly to
           the success of their teams.
                

      THANK YOU
