Philosophy of Athletics
Athletics should be treated as an integral piece of each students educational program. The experiences that student athletes have while representing their schools in athletics cannot be matched in classrooms. Athletics lead students through real life challenges that will help them throughout their lifetimes. Student athletes should be motivated to improve on a daily basis on the field of play, in the classroom, and in their personal lives. Athletics have the potential to be the driving force behind lifelong success of the high school student athlete.
