The Cedartown High School Athletic Department believes that athletics and the associated activities have a direct impact on the school’s ability to reach its academic and athletic goals. Through athletics, students are guided by coaches, who are committed to developing the student athlete’s physical, emotional, and mental maturity through physical conditioning, skill development, and competition. The coaching staff further believes that reaching one’s potential means very little without performance, as the basis of athletic preparation has a direct link for living and working in a competitive society.
Additionally, we believe in the value of athletic participation in all its forms. Such participation fosters the qualities of team membership, individual commitment, and personal excellence. Because every sport offers opportunities to develop these qualities, we are philosophically committed to a range of sports for every athlete who has time and desire to play. We are opposed to “recommendations that athletes restrict participation to a single sport.”
