Philosophy of Metro Tech Athletic Programs
The mission of the Metro Tech High School Athletic Department is to provide student-athletes with an opportunity to compete successfully in a high school athletic program that is an integral part of their educational experience. We are dedicated to providing opportunities, which will enhance the intellectual, physical, social, moral and cultural development of the whole person while conducting all activities with honesty and integrity in accordance with the principles of good sportsmanship and ethical conduct.
Our sports teams will always strive to win, but never at the expense of character, healthy attitudes and habits and good judgment. We will always emphasize excellence, effort, improvement, and respect for coaches, teammates and officials. All Metro Tech High School athletes should be known for their character and class; humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
Metro Tech High School further recognizes the unique roles and responsibilities of its coaches and parents in sports activities. Coaches and parent primary roles should be to teach the lifetime values of our sports philosophy and to always lead by example. The MTHS athletic programs are an integral part of the school and the community. Their impact is immensely important in promoting a positive school climate because they offer opportunities for adults to interact with students in meaningful ways not available in the classroom.
