The student-athlete is not only responsible to self but also to his/her teammates. Athletics would be slighted if only portrayed as a program for development of youth. Interscholastic athletics is the enjoyment of companionship and new friendships, the exhilaration of meeting and exceeding personal and team goals, and the development of personal skills and standards. Interscholastic athletics is the involvement of the whole student body in spirit and support beyond the academic sphere of the school.
With these beliefs, we feel that a strong program of interscholastic athletics is needed by Seattle Prep, a school most interested in attracting and developing young Christian lives. This program must provide a diverse selection of sports, and the program must insure that the level of interscholastic competition is appropriate to induce excellence in athletic abilities, moral leadership, physical enjoyment, and school involvement.
