Philosophy of Varsity Athletics

Varsity athletics should be preparing students to take on the full responsibilities of life.  Varsity athletics is the highest level of athletics that most students will reach.  It is a significant milestone in many students lives and it is and should be treated with a great deal of respect.  Our varsity teams are constantly competing for championships and those challenges require them to learn the value of hard work and sacrifice.  Those two values will help to prepare them for all walks of life as they graduate from high school. We do not deviate from our overall philosophy for athletics but certain elements do set varsity athletics apart from the lower levels.

Keys to Varsity Athletics

  1. We are competing to win every game.
  2. We expect a larger commitment from our athletes both during the season and in the off-season.
  3. Not everyone will have the opportunity to participate.
  4. The coaching emphasis is on team concepts and strategies and not on basic fundamentals that should already be mastered by the athlete.
  5. Players will be expected to take on a larger role in the leadership of the team.
  6. Players will be expected to take full responsibility for equipment.
