Philosophy of Athletic Participation 




Edward J. Ross, Athletic Director 


At Poolesville High School, athletic activity participation serves to assist young people in their personal growth and development by reinforcing the valuable principles of sound leadership while promoting the importance of team work, reliability, loyalty, and dedication to achieving excellence.  As well, participation in athletic activity teaches the importance of goal achievement and sportsmanship traits that teach competitors the value of upholding humility in victory and determination in defeat. 

Although every competitive athlete and coach strives to be his or her very best, winning and losing become secondary issues when compared to the manner in which athletes and coaches conduct themselves on and off the field.  While exhibiting dignity and grace in the face of adversity, our athletes and coaches must remain aware of a greater purpose to be first, Ladies and Gentlemen; second, Scholars; and third, Competitors. 

In a much larger life perspective, scoreboard results become fleeting memories when compared to the lasting effect of an individual’s maximum effort toward a greater purpose.  While it is true that competitors do not always perform at the same level, it is their dedicated commitment to excellence and positive attitude that define the core of their winning character; and with hope, the benefit of athletic participation will prepare the individual for success in a world beyond the athletic activity itself.
