HIRAM RURITAN YOUTH ATHLETICS
The Hiram Ruritan Youth Athletic Programs will make every effort to make sure that every child with the desire to participate gets the opportunity to participate in any program we offer without regard to prior experience or athletic ability.
We are committed to instilling Honesty, Loyalty, Integrity, Teamwork, Discipline, Sportsmanship, Respect, Leadership, Trust, Commitment and Self-Pride in our youth participants. We believe these values and virtues are important to their growth and the ability to become an active member of our community and society.
It is our goal to instill in our youth participants the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, the importance of commitment and the spirit of community.
Our “Excellence is Our Habit” Recognition program is to directly underscore the importance of academic achievement among athletes, and by doing so, it will prepare them for the challenge of middle and high school and collegiate environments.
These commitments and goals will be achieved through the organization of our dedicated volunteers, caring parents, and business associates who wish to partner with the Hiram Ruritan Youth Athletics.
The Hiram Ruritan Club is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization that is ran by volunteers that share a primary goal and vision to provide youth sport programs for the residents of Paulding and other surrounding counties. To offer a competitive program that promotes and encourages the Hiram Ruritan Youth Athletics Mission Statement that emphasizes the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork, character, along with the fundamentals of the sport in which they participate.
All youth sport program expenses and park expenses are funded by registration fees that are collected for participation.
