The Pittsfield Public School’s athletic program should provide a variety of experiences to aid in the development of favorable habits and attitudes in students that will prepare them for adult life in our society.  The program seeks to promote mental, emotional, and social health in addition to the physical development necessary for an active life.  Emphasis is given to the teaching of skills in diverse physical activities and educating students in the concept of fair play, cooperative effort, and the ability to handle adversity.  The school district encourages all students to become engaged to the best of their ability in the sports of their choice.


Purpose of Interscholastic Athletics

  • The opportunity to learn new skills and improve upon old skills.
  • The opportunity to develop physical vigor and desirable habits in health and safety.
  • The opportunity to develop new friendships.
  • The opportunity to observe and exemplify good sportsmanship.
  • The realization that athletic competition is a privilege that carries with it certain responsibilities.
  • The chance to learn that violations of rules brings penalty – and that this same sequence occurs throughout life.
