notre dame high school athletic mission statement
The mission of our Athletic Department at Notre Dame High School is founded on our belief that interscholastic athletics provides educational value for our students. Interscholastic athletics promotes character traits of high value which will lead to success later in life. These include the commitment to take one's talents to the highest level of performance; embracing the discipline needed to reach high standards; learning to work with others in pursuit of a common goal; and adherence to codes of fair play, self-control and respect. Athletics will also play an important role in creating a sense of community in our school while creating a positive environment in which others wish to be part of.
The core values that our Athletic Department strives to attain are:
Notre Dame High School supports Section IV's policy on sportsmanship. Notre Dame is committed to promoting the proper ideals of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play at all inter-school activities. We will oppose instances and activities, which run counter to the best values of athletic competition in order to insure the well being of all individual players. We will expect high standards of good citizenship and propriety with proper regard for the rights of others.
We are further committed to the belief that schools participating in inter-school activities should be held responsible for the conduct of their players, coaches, faculty members and spectators. Conduct, which is detrimental to the educational value of athletic activities, may be deemed just cause for the school's reprimand, probation, suspension from particular sport, or suspension from sectional activities.
