Athletics are to be promoted as a tool to enhance a student’s wellness through sports (physical health, intellectual health, social health, emotional health and spiritual health as in morals/values.) The role of a coach is that of a teacher first; instructing in all aspects of development and competition including but not limited to technical skill, tactical skill, fitness, and character as it relates to sports. By the coach teaching and developing the sport skills of the player as an individual and the team as a whole, it is the hope of our department that students who are selected for teams gain a life-long appreciation for the sport and can apply key fundamentals concerning effort, achievement, sportsmanship, character, determination, and at times failure, to all aspects of life thus, overcoming adversity and clinging to successes earned.
