About WHS Athletics
Dear Parent and Student-Athlete,
Welcome to Waterford High School Athletics.
A comprehensive and balanced inter-scholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total educational process. While the high school athletic program serves as an arena for the student-athlete to display his/her talents, student athletes must in turn, be willing to accept the responsibility to self, to team, and to school. The value of athletics as an educational tool provides opportunities for mastery of established learning outcomes and exciting skills. The student-athlete will demonstrate self-discipline, emotional control and the ideals of good sportsmanship. The student-athlete will be given opportunities and experience to develop healthy self-esteem. The student-athlete will demonstrate ethical qualities and be capable of taking his/her place in society. These are the goals of the athletic department.
Participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege, not a right.
