It is not a right but a PRIVILEDGE and an HONOUR to be a Bison and to wear the blue, black and white team colours. Each player must be a team player and possess the "WE" ATTITUDE instead of the "ME" attitude.

Individual performance is secondary to TEAM PERFORMANCE!

Our team is based on PRIDE and HARD WORK.

Intensity and excitement are part of every practice and game. What we put into our practices is directly proportional to what we bring home from our games. We expect all players and coaches to be the best they can be during every practise session, on every play, in every exhibition, tournament, regular season or playoff game!

Bison players will be CONFIDENT in themselves and their efforts and TRUST each other and the football program.

We will play ONE GAME AT A TIME and prepare for ONE TEAM AT A TIME.

Each player will possess a mature and POSITIVE ATTITUDE and share the philosophy of WORKING TOGETHER.

RESPECT WILL BE SHOWN towards the game, the officials, opponents, teammates, coaching staff, trainers, parents and fans from both sides of the ball - IN VICTORY OR DEFEAT.

It's Been an Honour

As we step out the doors

And into the light

We're ready for battle

We get ready to fight.

On the bus we sit together

One effort...one team

We have worked hard for each other

On each other we lean.

There are those that have doubted us

They refuse to give us respect

After we play together today

They will have all winter to reflect.

The Ardrossan Bisons are for real

Today we will leave no doubt

We respect everyone, fear no one

That is what this season's about.

It has been an honour to lead you

I love this team more than you know

The time is here, finally

We have made it to the show.

As we sit on this bus

Mighty Bisons, side by side

I wanted to thank you all so much

It's been one hell of a ride!!
