Youth Sports Philosophy

It is the philosophy of the Mt. Pleasant Parks & Recreation Department to provide youth with the opportunity to participate in a learning environment where fundamentals are stressed and an overall positive experience is achieved. Although these programs may involve competition, winning and losing are secondary to children learning the sport, enjoyment of participation, and sportsmanship!
