It is a privilege to be a student-athlete in the interscholastic program of the Middletown Public Schools. We, who are concerned with the educational development, of men and women through athletics, feel that a properly controlled, well-organized sports program meets with the students' needs for self-expression, mental alertness and physical growth. It is our hope to maintain a program that is sound in purpose and will further each student's educational maturity.
A wide variety of sports programs are offered both at the varsity, sub-varsity level and club levels. Because of this high degree of visibility, it is important that you represent your school, your team and most importantly yourself with pride, determination and commitment.
You must be held accountable to provide leadership, to exhibit responsible behavior and to keep the rules of the team, coach, school and conference. When you win, we will share your pride, enjoy your glory. Keep in mind that how you conduct yourselves on and off the playing field is as important to us as how well you play.
Participation in interscholastic athletics is an experience you will never forget. Enjoy it; take pride in your performance and best wishes for a successful season.
