The interscholastic athletic program of the Saginaw Public School District is a vital and integral part of the total educational program. Research indicates that a student involved in extra-curricular activities has a greater chance for success during adulthood. Many of the character traits required to be a successful participant are exactly those that will promote a successful life after high school. The purpose of interscholastic athletics is to make a positive contribution to the development of the participants, spectators, school and community.
As an integral part of the educational process, the athletic program should always conform and support the objectives and standards of the school. The total educational curriculum must take precedence to the athletic program. Athletes should strive for educational excellence, playing excellence, as well as staying within the boundaries of good sportsmanship.
