WJ Athletic Department Philosophy

The athletic program of this school reflects the commitment in the MCPS Goals of Education that "each school will work towards ensuring that all students make the best of both physical talents and limitations." The success of our athletic teams is a direct result of the following: dedication of our coaches; continuing cooperation between members of the Athletic Department and the Administration; the superb support provided by the Booster Club, parents, and members of the community; and the dedication, skill, and participation of our athletes.

Athletics is considered to be an integral part of the total educational process. Scholar-athletes need to be reminded of the roles played both by athletics and by the academic education they receive in building the foundation of their future success. It is considered of prime importance that coaches monitor their athletes' progress in the academic environment, not only during the sport season but throughout the school year.

Interscholastic sports are a "tool" which can be used to teach and practice good citizenship. To this end, we believe winning and losing are important only when considered in the context of how we play the game and how we represent ourselves and our school under the pressure of competition.

Therefore, we believe:

  • THAT interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the educational program of Walter Johnson High School. Participation on a team will promote desirable attitudes toward the importance of team work and team unity, will promote social growth and maturation of all individuals involved and will prepare participants for the responsibilities of adult life.
  • THAT every student should have an opportunity to become involved in the athletic program; if not as an athlete, then in other capacities such as manager, statistician, or video recorder.
  • THAT the Coaches and participants should strive at all levels to develop and display the attitudes of good sportsmanship, good citizenship and loyalty to teams and school.
  • THAT the health and well-being of the participants are more important than the outcome of any athletic contest.
