The Philosopy of Interscholastic Athletics
The East Aurora Union Free School District believes that the interscholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total education process. To insure this, the program is based on sound educational principles. Every activity sponsored and supported by a school must be considered a part of the total educational process.
Athletics are an outgrowth of the district's physical education program. Through physical education, intramurals and athletics, the district offers all students a fair and equal opportunity to develop to a maximum their physical, mental and social potential.
Athletics allow those students who have demonstrated a desire for further development the opportunity to participate on a higher level. To be an integral part of the educational process, athletics must follow the same goals and objectives that govern the physical educational program.
