We believe that Whitehall District Schools' athletes should compete honorably while representing their team, school and community.  With appropriate attitude, dedication, and leadership, they will contribute positively to school spirit and community pride.  To accomplish this, we encourage the cooperation of athletes, parents, and boosters.  Participation in athletics is a privilege and when student-athletes participate on an athletic team, those individuals assume the responsibility of being team members.

The responsibilities include: 

  1. Being aware that he/she will be expected to act as a positive force in the school.
  2. ​Follow the code of conduct in the athletic code of ethics and student handbook.
  3. Complying with team rules and policies.
  4. Maintaining academic eligibility (pass four core classes/1.5 or above GPA).
  5. Maintaining a positive attitude.
  6. Understanding his/her role as a team member

Team members and their parents should understand that not all athletes will receive equal playing time.  There is an emphasis on participation for all athletes at the TH and TH grade level.  Athletic participation of freshmen teams allows for some playing time.  As the athlete moves to the junior varsity and varsity levels, parents and students athletes must understand that playing time depends on the athletic ability of the participants and team needs in that particular sport as determined by the coaching staff.  Our athletic philosophy encourages our teams to compete for league championships and continue in state tournament play at the high school level.
