Interscholastic Athletics Program Philosophy

A basic tenet of the educational philosophy of the Fayetteville-Manlius School District is to facilitate personal, academic, cultural and social development. A comprehensive program of student activities is vital to the educational development of students. Within this context, it is the purpose of the district's athletics program to foster and promote:

  • The ideals of competition, team work and sportsmanship while achieving the goals of success and participation;
  • Appropriate physical, social and psychological development;
  • The development of self-confidence, self-discipline, organization, decision making skills and goal orientation;
  • A positive feeling of school pride and loyalty by participants, other students, parents, coaches and the community;
  • The development of the concept of sound mind and sound body, leading to a lifetime appreciation for physical fitness and good health habits;
  • The development of self-worth and a healthy self-concept, regardless of a student's role or play on a team. Athletic experiences should leave students with a good feeling about themselves;
  • The interscholastic athletics program, conducted in accordance with existing Board of Education policies, rules and regulations;
  • Great pride in winning. The Fayetteville- Manlius School District does not condone "winning at any cost" and discourages any and all pressures that might tend to neglect good sportsmanship and good mental health.
