About East Haven Athletics
Athletic Participation . . .“A Privilege”
It is important for students and parents to realize participation in the East Haven Public Schools athletic program is not a right of all students, but rather a privilege which is afforded to those selected individuals who possess the ability, attitude, disposition, cooperative spirit, and desire to represent the student body and school community in a manner which reflects favorably upon the reputation of our Schools. Athletics at the High School and the Middle School is completely voluntary and no student is obligated to take part. Also, athletic participation is not a prerequisite for college entrance.
However, there are special standards and expectations in the areas of academics, citizenship, training rules, and sportsmanship which must be complied with by the participants, and it is essential that student-athletes and parents be thoroughly familiar with all rules and regulations governing athletic participation. Furthermore, as with all privileges, it is important to remember the school reserves the right to revoke the privilege of any participant who does not conduct himself/herself in an acceptable manner.
We take great pride in the East Haven Public Schools athletic program and invite all students who are willing to accept its philosophy to be candidates for our athletic teams.
Good Luck to all Spring athletes!!!!
