The East Palestine Schools support the philosophy that a quality interscholastic athletic program is vital to
the positive social, physical, and educational development of students. The interscholastic athletic program
enhances and supports the academic mission of the school system. We are committed to promoting the
proper idea of sportsmanship, ethical conduct, and fair play at all athletic contests. We support high
standards of good citizenship and propriety, along with regard for the rights of others. Furthermore, we
support diversification over specialization regarding interscholastic participation by student-athletes.

East Palestine Schools offer the following interscholastic activities/athletic programs:

Baseball (HS)
Basketball (HS & MS)
Cheerleading (HS & MS)
Cross Country (HS & MS)
Football (HS & MS)
Golf (HS)
Soccer (HS)
Softball (HS)
Tennis (HS)
Track (HS & MS)
Volleyball (HS & MS)
Wrestling (HS & MS)

The Athletic Administration, coaches, and players will perpetually work together on a plan of continual
improvement for playing excellence that will produce winning teams within the bounds of good
sportsmanship.

Participation in interscholastic sports is a voluntary privilege. Such participation will always be based on
healthy competition between team members for starting positions and playing time. An attitude of
entitlement, on the part of any team member, has absolutely no place in any of our athletic programs.

All interscholastic sports in the East Palestine Schools are team sports. Consequently, while our various
programs will continually stress individual development, it will always be within the framework and
emphasis on the TEAM. Each time participants step into a school or onto the practice field and anytime
they participate in a contest they are expected to represent themselves, family, team, school and
community in a responsible, sportsmanlike manner.

Interscholastic sports in the East Palestine Schools are meant to develop character, sportsmanship, self-
confidence, teamwork, unselfishness, responsibility, leadership, competitive spirit, decision-making, and
physical skills through the processes of hard work, commitment, and loyalty.
