    PUYALLUP SCHOOL DISTRICT #3

    Puyallup, Washington

    2014-2015 School Year

    ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT

    COACHES MANUAL

    FOREWORD

    Athletics is an excellent means of bringing together home, school, and community, while contributing to the

    personal growth, and education of students. The interscholastic athletic program should provide the

    opportunity to compete in athletic contests with other schools; contribute in a positive way toward the total

    development of participants; aid the student in acquiring new friendships; further community spirit; and

    develop good sportsmanship.

    The overall purpose of the Puyallup School District is academic growth and success. Athletics do not

    supplant this purpose. It is the Athletics Departments expectation that students will make appropriate

    progress toward academic expectations, requirement, and graduation.

    Much of the success of the program depends upon the effective management and supervision of the program.

    To that end this manual should assist all personnel in interpreting the program in the proper perspective and

    serve as a reference source for carrying out responsibilities. An annual review of the policies and procedures

    in this manual require the need to alter or expand the document. The ultimate objective is the betterment of

    the athletic program.

    PUYALLUP SCHOOL DISTRICT ATHLETIC BELIEF STATEMENT

    The Puyallup School District believes that interscholastic athletics must provide the opportunity for students to develop physically, socially, and emotionally throughout their secondary school career. Athletics and participation in athletics is one of the primary reasons that students feel a kinship with their schools and is a contributing factor in both student classroom success and the desire to stay in school.
