Some athletes set HIGHER STANDARDS for themselves.
They come to practice early…and stay late. They
always find the time to do things right. They are self motivated.
Funny….how they are usually the winners.
Here at FLYING CIRCUS….. We set HIGHER STANDARDS.
We put in that extra effort. Be a WINNER….Work HARD….
Set a POSITIVE EXAMPLE for others…. STICK TOGETHER…..
Support each other….Set HIGH GOALS…. IMPROVE EVERY DAY..
BELIEVE in YOURSELF …. EARN YOUR SPOT….
