Phoenix High School Athletics & Activities Department
Extra-curricular programs will prepare students for success by encouraging involvement,
development of character and positive individual traits, and fulfillment of competitive desires.
The student-athlete will learn the value of practice, fair play, conditioning, self-discipline,
adherence to rules and policies, willingness to work, ability to persist even when losing, and an
ability to analyze why they lost and how to compensate for it. They will learn to be humble in
victory and to learn from defeat. The student will gain an appreciation for teamwork and ethical conduct while fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community. In the effort to offer a cohesive and coordinated educational program, the district insists upon ethical behavior and good citizenship of its students not only in extra-curriculars, but also in school, in the classroom, in the home, and within the community. As the needs of the student body change, the extra-curricular programs will be dynamic in their focus and consideration of new opportunities for student participation. The competition within each program provides a setting for Phoenix High School students, staff and community members to demonstrate good sportsmanship and respect for others, both in victory and defeat. Our families, school and community should be able to take pride in the participants, coaches, advisors and themselves who represent Phoenix High School.
