Philosophy of Meridian School Athletics

Interscholastic athletics shall be an integral part of the total school educational program that has as its purpose to provide educational experiences not otherwise provided in the curriculum, which will develop learning outcomes in the areas of knowledge, skills, and emotional patterns and will contribute to the development of better citizens.  Emphasis shall be upon teaching "through" athletics in addition to teaching the "skills" of athletics.

A great athletic tradition is not built overnight--it takes the hard work and dedication of many individuals over many years.  As a member of an interscholastic team, the athlete has certain responsibilities to uphold.

  • Responsibility to yourself
  • Responsibility to the school
  • Responsibilities of the coaching staff

 

Sportsmanship

Good sportsmanship is when teammates, opponents, coaches, and officials treat each other with respect. Kids learn the basics of sportsmanship from the adults in their lives, especially their parents and their coaches. Kids who see adults behaving in a sportsmanlike way gradually come to understand that the real winners in sports are those who know how to persevere and to behave with dignity—whether they win or lose a game.

 

SPORTSMANSHIP POEM


We welcome you
to activities for our school
no booing please we ask you
you know the reason why
this game is played by high school kids
professionals they are not
so cheer for them when they're good
and even if they're not
we're trying to teach some values
they can use 'til life is done
in order to learn these values
they don't have to be #1
someone is sure to win this game
the other team will lose
but if they play with sportsmanship
well, they'll have paid their dues
for in athletic contests
victory is so sweet
but there's no loser here tonight
for losers don't compete
so as you watch them play tonight
friendships they're renewing
cheer as loudly as you wish
but we'll tolerate no booing.

 

Be a proud Mustang!!  Use good sportsmanship.
