Sequoia Pathway Baseball competes in the Canyon Athletic Association where Student-athletes and coaches are expected to compete with honesty, sportsmanship, and fair play at all times within the guidelines of CAA. The program will demonstrate the positive values of physical activity, focus on developing players skills, teamwork, dedications to excellence, sportsmanship, and help to promote players who choose to play at the collegiate level. The baseball team will take reasonable steps to ensure that the educational objectives and academic progress of student athletes shall be supported at all times, and wherever possible the coaches will seek to provide opportunities to involve students in meaningful learning experiences. Student athletes shall be made aware of the important responsibilities they accept when they become members of Pathway athletic teams. These responsibilities include performing at an optimum level both academically and athletically, giving their best efforts toward the success of their team, and conducting themselves in a manner which will reflect well on themselves, their team, and Sequoia Pathway. The student-athlete will recognize that these responsibilities may require sacrifices which may not be necessary were they not student-athletes.
