Adoption Date

The Board recognizes the value to the Corporation and to the community of a program of interscholastic athletics for as many boys and girls as feasible.

A. The program of interscholastic athletics should provide students the opportunity to exercise and test their athletic abilities in a context greater and more varied than that which can be offered by a school or the Corporation alone.

B. The program should foster the growth of school loyalty with the student body as a whole and stimulate community interest in athletics.

C. Game activities and practice sessions should provide many opportunities to teach the values of competition and good sportsmanship. The Board subscribes to the administrative guidelines of the Indiana High School Athletic Association but maintains responsibility for enforcement of all rules.

The Board believes that it is the purpose of an interscholastic program to provide the benefits of an athletic experience to as large a number of students as feasible within the Corporation.
