Pottsgrove Athletic Department Philosophy
 
  1. The Athletic Department should afford the opportunity for all students who desire to participate.  This does not mean students must play in every athletic contest

  2. All coaches are expected to promote the broad educational development of youth.  Coaches are in a position to exert considerable influence in guiding youth and encouraging them to achieve the highest level of their potential.

  3. Athletics should provide an opportunity to extend students' interest beyond the classroom experience within and outside the community.

  8. Athletics should develop an appreciation for individual excellence and making maximum contribution to team, school, profession, and vocation.

  9. Athletics should provide an opportunity for all athletes to excel to their maximum ability.
