Welcome to Walla Walla High School Athletics!
PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETICS AT WALLA WALLA HIGH SCHOOL
The Walla Walla community takes great pride in the success and achievements of their athletic teams and members. At Walla Walla High School, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of individual and team interscholastic activities. Student athletes have the opportunity to learn, develop, and practice skills by extending their abilities through the athletic program. The purpose of athletics is to enhance and contribute towards the overall education of each student athlete. Similar to the curricular program, we hope to offer a sound educational environment where appropriate methods of instruction are used. It is also recognized that a well-organized and well-conducted athletic program is a potent factor in the morale of a school student body and an important phase of good community-school relations.
Athletics and interscholastic sports are not extracurricular activities. They are an extension of the total educational program and are viewed as co-curricular. The rewards that accrue to students as a result of their participation in activities are well documented and extremely positive. Students who participate in comprehensive co-curricular programs benefit socially, physically, mentally and emotionally.
The success of the program is dependent upon the quality, commitment and dedication of the personnel employed in the program. As coaches, the success of our programs will be based on the ability of each student athlete to gain positive experiences in the following areas: teamwork, discipline, goal setting, academic achievement, cooperation, and competitive desire. Winning may be important but not as important as the athletes who participate in the programs and their efforts to improve and be team players.
