    PHILOSOPHY
    Barrington Middle School offers a variety of athletic and non-athletic school sports and activities through interscholastic competition.

    We highly encourage all students to participate in these activities…

    “BE A PART…BY TAKING PART!”

    The aim of our co-curricular program is to provide school related, age appropriate activities as an extension of the curricular programs. We believe there are valuable lessons to be learned through well supervised and well organized competitive and noncompetitive school related activities. These activities extend classroom learning and help prepare students for life.

    As members of the Suburban Middle School Conference, we adhere to the belief that the intent of our programs is to provide opportunities for students to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities with schools that also share this philosophy and understanding,

    This conference emphasizes the child’s needs. Our desire is for the student to participate, develop skills, and build confidence in one self. Our focus is in maximum participation and not end of year standings. Within limited (cut) sports, winning at the cost of maximum participation runs contrary to the belief of this conference. Each schools administrators / athletic directors are responsible for instilling this belief within their coaching staff. Every eligible team member will have the opportunity to participate in every regular season contest within limited (cut) sports.

    Finally, all participants involved in the Suburban Middle School Conference from coaches, to students, administrators, teachers and parents support and demonstrate good sportsmanship. Nothing less is expected of the fans who attend our games and activities. It is an expectation that all involved will represent their school and the conference by demonstrating good sportsmanship by cheering on their and players and recognizing good performance by others.

    PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
    The philosophy of the Suburban Middle School Conference is to provide maximum opportunities for participation in a variety of co-curricular activities with schools that share common middle school beliefs.

    COMMITMENT RATIONALE
    1. Academic Achievement
    • SMSC provides and continues to pursue competitive activities with an academic focus. Current areas include scholastic bowl and participation in a conference spelling bee.
    2. Geographic Advantage
    • Travel time to any member school within the conference is a consideration for membership.
    3. Four-season Schedule
    • Relieves building facility use and allows space and time for intramural use.
    • Allows for an increase in participation. With this increase in participation, more students are being impacted in the areas of skill development and developing a greater self-esteem. This leads to further involvement in High School activities.
    4. Conference emphasis
    • FOCUS STATEMENT This conference emphasizes the child’s needs. Our desire is for the student to participate, develop skills, and build confidence in one self. Our focus is in maximum participation and not end of the year standings. Within limited (cut) sports, winning at the cost of maximum participation runs contrary to the belief of this conference. Each schools administrators/athletic directors are responsible for instilling this belief within their coaching staff. Every eligible team member will have the opportunity to participate in every regular season contest within limited (cut) sports.
    • Sportsmanship Statement The schools of the Suburban Middle School Conference consider good sportsmanship to be one of the most important rewards of healthy competition. Suburban Middle School Conference coaches, students, administrators, teachers and parents support and demonstrate good sportsmanship. Nothing less is expected of the fans who attend our games and activities. So, cheer on your team and recognize good preformances of others. Have fun representing your school and conference. Thank you for demonstrating good sportsmanship the S.M.S.C. way!
