Athletic Philosophy

  • FK8 athletics icon Statement of Philosophy

    Athletics play a vital role in the life of our students. Young people learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program. Athletics also play an important part in helping the individual student develop a healthy body. Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students, spectators, as well as participants develop pride in their school.

    The intra-district athletic program shall be conducted in accordance with existing Florence Unified Board of Education policies, rules, and regulations. While the Board of Education takes great pride in winning, it does not condone “winning at any cost” and discourages any and all pressures which might tend to neglect good sportsmanship and good mental health. At all times the athletic program must be conducted in such a way so as to justify it as an educational activity.
