Manchester High School West strongly supports the commitment to interscholastic athletic programs as an essential educational opportunity available to students. Secondary school educators have long recognized the educational value of sports. High school sports are conducted in all 50 states in a variety of sports for teams and individuals of either gender. For the participants, sports provide the opportunity to develop the skills and abilities essential to becoming a well-rounded individual and finding success in life. Young men and women develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially through voluntary participation in properly conducted interscholastic athletic programs. Specifically, the improvement of character and physical skills, along with the opportunity for achievement and the development of a desire to excel are all advantages associated with athletic participation.
