T.S.T. Athletic Department Philosophy
At TST we believe that a strong co-curricular sports program can, as part of the school’s overall curriculum, help prepare students to both enjoy and be successful in life. TST sports teams stress hard work, leadership, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and fair play, while promoting and fostering a desire to learn about, and learn from, sports.
The success of our program is dependent upon the expertise and dedication of our coaching staff, and the spirit and network of cooperation that links our coaches with the TST administration, parent community, and the fine TST student-athletes themselves.
In summary, we believe that:
· Co-curricular sports are an integral part of TST’s overall curricular program.
· Every student should have the opportunity to become involved to some extent.
· Coaches and student-athletes should, at all levels, develop and exhibit accepted attitudes of good sportsmanship, good citizenship, and dedication.
· Our values, and the health and well-being of our program’s participants, are more important than the winning and losing of athletic contests.
