It is our hope that all students will find a sport or other activity here at Heath that will excite them about exercising and staying active as well as increasing their school spirit and desire to improve their academics, attendance, and behavior to remain eligible for participation.
We offer a variety of sports within the middle and K-8 schools in Greeley School District 6. While we want to win and develop a win-seeking attitude among our students, we place a great emphasis on character development and having fun! I have heard many excuses for not playing sports and the most frequent one is, "I'm just not good enough."
Our response to that comes from the story of Michael Jordan who was cut from his high school basketball team his junior year. At 5'11'', there was a 6'8" player who out played him. Instead of pouting or giving up on sports, Michael Jordan used this event to inspire himself throughout his college and NBA years eventually becoming a member of the NBA Hall of Fame and, arguably, the best basketball player in the history of the NBA. This is one of many more success stories.
