At Bowman Middle School, our goals are to develop young athletes in all sport-specific skills, establish academic skills, and build character. By becoming a member of Bowman athletics, your child is agreeing to hold themselves to a higher standard. Playing sports is a privilege and with it comes the responsibility of being a model student in and outside of school. Coaches expect athletes to take pride in themselves, their school and their community. They should always keep in mind younger students are looking up to them and should always act in a respectable manner. Our coaches look forward to the opportunity of helping each athlete see and reach their full potential so that they can find success at Bowman and in life.
