Interscholastic athletics at Wheatland-Chili Central Schools is a component of the physical education program, and therefore an integral part of the district's total educational program. A high-quality athletic program is important to our students, school, and community. Athletics is intended to be a broadening experience in which athletes striving for physical and mental excellence create harmony of mind-body functions. A well-coordinated program is vitally important to the morale of the school community.
Students who participate in athletics should realize they have an obligation to themselves, their co-participants, and the school community to strive for excellence. Everyone involved in athletics possesses a unique opportunity to teach and learn positive life skills and values. The skills learned on and off the field/court through athletics help make each student college and career ready. Student-athletes need to develop desire, dedication, and self-discipline in order to ensure their success in any athletic program. A great deal of commitment and personal sacrifice required by athletes. Winning games has often been considered the measure of success; however, the number of victories is only one criterion that determines a season's success. Guiding the team to attain maximum potential is the ultimate goal.
Working toward a common goal involves maximum performance and consistent effort. Each level of our athletic program develops a certain outcome for each participant.
