Foundational Beliefs

Eagan Athletic Department Purpose Statement: 

"To Develop Eagan Athletes to be great teammates and better people!"


When athletes join Eagan Cross Country and Track, they develop several clearly identifiable characteristics in their lives. Our coaches focus on these six very appropriate goals during your track/cross country experience. These characteristics influence the educational value of athletics in your life.

1. The development of the desire to strive whole-heartedly toward excellence
2. The development of the realization that nothing of any real value is ever achieved without hard work and dedication
3. The development of a healthy attitude toward competition
4. The development of a spirit of cooperation

5. The development of self-confidence through the use of one’s own decision-making capabilities
6. The development of the desire to have fun!!
