The AFO recognizes that many different values are relied upon when developing our players. One is not more or less important than the other, rather each value is developed in the player at their pace and according to their personal goals. With this in mind, the organization has aligned itself with five Core Values that we feel should be part of the player's development. These values are Attitude, Commitment, Effort, Respect, and Success. We exemplify these values in everything we do and are proud to display them in our name, ACERS.
We have a positive attitude because we believe in ourselves, our teammates, and our AFO. A positive attitude attracts people with positive attitudes, and we like to associate with positive people, positive people are winners. We have positive attitudes because we are in control of our future and look forward to it.
We commit to our process and take responsibility for the outcomes.
Give 100% in everything we do.
We play the game of Fastpitch softball because we love it. We show our love for the game by respecting it. We are ambassadors of the game, we follow the rules, we treat umpires and opposing teams with the same respect we show our parents, and we set an example for all who witness our performances, and we thank them for being a part of it. We love the game.
If we combine a positive attitude, an unwavering commitment, always doing the best we can, and respecting ourselves along the way, then success is only a formality.
