    Winning is fun. Sure . But winning is not entirely the point in athletics.

    Striving to compete to your ability and preparing yourself for the challenges of competition is the point of athletics. Never giving up is the point. Never letting each other down is the point. Competing with class and dignity is the point in scholastic athletics. Measuring up to the very best that is in you is the real point. Here at FLYING CIRCUS we have been blessed with dedicated and focused athletes over the years. This has been the key to your success….Keep you spirit alive and enjoy your adventure together !!!!
