Woodbury High School is committed to using extracurricular activities to embrace all students and provide a positive experience that is nurturing and impactful.
The Woodbury HS Activities Department has an active commitment to meet the following goals:
To provide all student-athletes with positive experiences which promote the ideals of leadership, physical fitness, competition, and the pursuit of excellence.
To protect the well being of student-athletes through policies and procedures concerned with safety, fitness, and injury care.
To foster progress of student-athletes through the academic curriculum of the educational institution to which they belong.
To empower all student-athletes with the knowledge skills, and attitudes for success in academics, athletics, and life.
To produce competitive athletic teams.
Participation in co-curricular activities is a privilege, not a right.
Academic priorities must come before participation in co-curricular activities.
Co-curricular activities serve as an extension of the school day, a “7th period” with coaches serving the role of teacher.
“Why We Play” is much more important than the results on the scoreboard.
Sportsmanship needs to have a constant presence in all school-based activity programs.
Ethical behavior, dignity and respect are non-negotiable.
Collaborative relationships with parents enhance a school's opportunity to positively impact student success.
Compliance with school, community and MSHSL rules is essential for all activity participants.
High school activity programs are designed for student participants, and adults are expected to serve in a supportive role.
Positive role models and active involvement in an athlete’s life are critical for success.
Team selection and playing time is not a direct reflection on a student’s self-worth.
The success of the team is more important than individual honors and is dependent upon the contribution of all team members.
Participation in school-sponsored activities must be inclusive and embrace diversity.
Coaches, directors, and advisors will work with each other to ensure that students can be involved in multiple activities, including athletics, fine arts, and academics.
