Lakeland & Milford Athletic Code of Conduct
Huron Valley Schools' Athletic Department supports competition in educational athletics and promotes the development of character.
Statement of Philosophy
Huron Valley Schools believes that educational athletics are an integral part of the total educational program. Competition in educational athletics provides our student athletes experiences beyond the academic curriculum. Success in educational athletics is measured qualitatively – through the total experience for our student athletes – not quantitatively – by wins and losses. Success is measured by the development of character, and the essential elements of character are embodied in the tenets of sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, responsibility, dedication and professionalism. Participation in educational athletics is a privilege, not a right. Participation is reserved for our student athletes who demonstrate a commitment to academics and the tenets of character. Working collaboratively coaches, administrators and parents will serve as a valuable asset in the development of our student athletes. This combined support of the Athletic Department’s mission is critical to helping our students reach their academic and athletic goals.
