Philosophy

The major objective of our interscholastic program is to promote the growth and development of all the participants. It is the development of the whole person that is important.

Objectives

The purpose of our athletic program is to enhance the educational experience of the student with healthy competition. This competition should prepare student-athletes for citizenship by teaching good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship will be evidenced when student athletes, play hard, play safe and accept the result of interscholastic competition.

Sportsmanship

As an association we need to establish acceptable standards for sportsmanlike behavior and correct behavior that is unacceptable.

We ask coaches to:

  • Exemplify the highest moral character behaviour and leadership
  • Respect the integrity and personality of athlete
  • Teach the rules of the game – both the letter and the spirit of the rules
  • Set an excellent example for players and spectators
  • Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials
  • Teach and reward sportsmanship


We ask student athletes to:

  • Accept and understand the seriousness, responsibility, and privilege of representing one’s school
  • Learn the rules of the game
  • Treat opponents with respect: “Remember the Golden Rule”
  • Respect the integrity and judgment of game officials


The keys to good sportsmanship are simple:

  • Know the rules of the game
  • Recognize good plays for both teams
  • Respect opponents, officials and spectators
