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.
