HORACE W. PORTER ATHLETICS PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
The athletic experience is an essential part of many student athletes’ overall education. Athletics plays a significant role in developing positive self-esteem and a sense of well-being. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of the Horace W. Porter School Athletic Program. To this end, the goal is to strive for excellence. Student growth and development is positively impacted when students engage in a strong academic program and participate in a strong athletic program.
While learning fair play, teamwork and self-discipline, student athletes must be challenged at the level or skill they bring to the sport. Student athletes shall be afforded the opportunity to participate at the most appropriate level to achieve optimal personal growth. Student athletes must have the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their maximum potential in a well-coached environment.
