Welcome to Cannon Athletics!
Athletics offer unique opportunities to be part of something bigger than one’s self. Life lessons and learning opportunities abound beyond the x’s and o’s. Sports require athletes to plan and prepare as well as adapt at a moment’s notice. Success and failure are both equally abundant and valuable in the development of any athlete. The process of preparation, or “the grind,” as we like to refer to it, requires commitment, effort, passion, accountability, and trust because of how far it pushes an athlete beyond his or her comfort zone. However, persevering the grind with teammates and coaches who are equally committed is an experience like none other.
Cannon Athletics is not just about the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. We strive to honor and celebrate the hours and hours of hard work that go into making ourselves better, making our teammates better, and making our teams better. We emphasize competing together, taking care of each other, playing the game the right way, and having fun!
Student-athletes at Cannon are fortunate to play for coaches who are well-respected within our conference as well as across the state. Our coaches have a deep understanding of their sport, can clearly communicate strategy and game plan, and more importantly, are fully invested in the lives of their student-athletes. It is often said, “A coach will impact more people in one year than the average person will in an entire lifetime.” I believe that our coaches aspire to and very successfully live out this responsibility.
We encourage you to get involved in Cannon Athletics as a student-athlete, volunteer, or simply as a fan! We look forward to seeing you throughout the year as we all work together in making Cannon Athletics the best it can be.
