Athletics & Team Sports
The Harbor’s athletic program gives each boy and girl the chance to develop as both an individual and a team player. Through sports, children learn the importance of following rules, self-discipline, and how to take responsibility for their actions. Following rules can be the difference between winning or losinga game, or being successful in life experiences outside of sports. They learn being responsible givesthem more control over a situation and helps builds self-esteem. The athletic program also gives children the opportunity to develop leadership skills while playing on one of the Harbor’s teams.
The campus includes a large gymnasium where the children play basketball and volleyball. The Harbor also has a baseball field with bleachers for spectators. In addition to intramural games, Harbor teams also compete against other residential care programs, churches, and private schools in the area.
Sporting events bring the campus together with children, house parents, and staff cheering on the Harbor Rams and reinforces the feeling of community.
