• GENERAL ATHLETIC PHILOSOPHY AND PURPOSE

     

    The opportunity for participation in a wide variety of student-selected activities is a vital part of the students educational experiences.  These experiences contribute to the development of learning skills and emotional patterns that enable the student to make maximum use of his or her education and talent.  Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the activity, to the student body, to the community and to the student himself/herself. 

     

    Athletics are a potential, educative force that makes desirable changes in the attitudes, habits, and skills, not only of those participating, but also of the entire student body and community.  It is the aim of an athletic program to develop healthy bodies, enhance physical skills and learn the values of teamwork while demonstrating character during competition.
