CHS Athletics: Purpose/Philosophy/Goals

PURPOSE

We are committed to representing our school and community with class and pride, sound fundamental play, strong team discipline, and elite conditioning for all athletes.

We will promote, direct, and conduct interscholastic athletics in such a manner as to further the aims of general education, promote friendly relations with other schools, to encourage participation by students, and to teach good sportsmanship.

PHILOSOPHY

The athletic department is an integral part of the educational process at Cashmere High School.  Being involved in athletics provides our students with opportunities to develop leadership skills and to learn the ideals of fair play and ethical behavior which are necessary for competition and cooperation in our society. It should also provide our students with the unique opportunities for self‐discipline, self‐sacrifice, and loyalty to the community, the school and the team.

Cashmere High School encourages all students to participate in athletics by offering a diverse selection of interscholastic athletics for both young men and women. Competition and cooperation are prized in our culture, and both are fostered by a well conducted athletic program under competent leadership.  Athletics which are regulated to meet educational objectives can provide a major contribution to the physical and moral development of students.
