Play for Keeps. Win for Life!

As a participant in sports or interscholastic activities, you know what it means to play for keeps – to give your all to an activity, a team or a sport you enjoy. You have a head start on knowing the value of good choices, and you know the rewards of hard work, practice and commitment.

And that’s exactly why this web site is here. Think of it as a place to go BEFORE you make a dangerous choice, and use it as your toolbox making positive, healthy choices to help you win for life.
