The primary goal of the high school athletic program is to provide a competitive arena where talented student-athletes can enhance their physical wellness and skills while gaining a greater technical and tactical understanding of their chosen sport. Within the athletic program, it is expected that a competitive spirit, sportsmanship, and character be upheld throughout the year, on and off the field of play. The athletic program should be a positive component of the student-athletes’ education and future success.
Participation in the athletic program is considered a privilege extended by the high school, through the Board of Education, to students who choose to participate. Participation in this program requires a commitment by the student-athlete of his/her time, energy and loyalty, as well as acceptance of coaches’ decisions, training techniques, and expectations. Student-athletes should willingly assume all responsibilities and obligations that are inherent and unique to the program. Student-athletes must understand and appreciate that they not only represent themselves during competition, but also their teammates, their school, the Souderton community, and a proud tradition of athletics at Souderton.
