Waterford High School

Lancer Pride!


Dear Parent and Student-Athlete,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe during this unprecedented time.

The goal at WHS is to return to normal classroom instruction, league play, and CIAC spring tournament action. At this point, the CIAC intends to salvage the spring season once schools reopen and to offer some form of its spring tournaments.  However, I have been made aware that the CIAC, which governs the entire state, has been receiving reports of students working out in large numbers in preparation for the spring season. Athletes should not be gathering as groups to work out or  prepare for the spring season.  This can only contribute to the delay of schools reopening and the demise of the spring season. Athletes are strongly discouraged from engaging in organized outside team practices, workouts, or individualized instruction. Social Distancing is the best course of action that we can collectively take to prevent further spread of COVID-19.  We cannot accomplish this goal if we do not stand firm on the importance of everyone doing their part in social distancing. 

Thank you. 
Chris Landry, Director of Athletics & Student Activities

Welcome to Waterford High School Athletics.

A comprehensive and balanced inter-scholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total educational process. While the high school athletic program serves as an arena for the student-athlete to display his/her talents, student athletes must in turn, be willing to accept the responsibility to self, to team, and to school. The value of athletics as an educational tool provides opportunities for mastery of established learning outcomes and exciting skills. The student-athlete will demonstrate self-discipline, emotional control and the ideals of good sportsmanship. The student-athlete will be given opportunities and experience to develop healthy self-esteem. The student-athlete will demonstrate ethical qualities and be capable of taking his/her place in society. These are the goals of the athletic department.
Participation in interscholastic athletics is a privilege, not a right.

If you have any questions please feel free to call Wendy Morris at 860.437.6956 x7420.
