ATHLETIC MISSION STATEMENT

The Derby Athletic Department believes that interscholastic athletics is an integral and significant part of the student-athlete’s academic, social, emotional, and physical development. Our athletic program is designed to be consistent with the basic philosophy of Derby High School and complete the total educational experience for our athletes. We will motivate our student-athletes to strive for excellence in academics and athletics, teach high moral and ethical values, and encourage them reach their full potential in and out of the sports arena.

ATHLETIC PHILOSOPHY

Successful athletic programs have specific goals. Some of those include: a positive experience for every athlete and a great sense of camaraderie and unity within their team; an environment that insures high ethical standards and expectations for fairness, equity, and sportsmanship for all of our student-athletes and coaches. In addition, the athlete learns the value of good sportsmanship and citizenship and gains self-reliance and understanding of the necessity for self-discipline and hard work to attain success. Students should learn that participation in athletics is not only a privilege but is also an honor that requires responsibility for maintaining one’s academic standing in the classroom and for maintaining a high standard of conduct inside and outside of school hours as outlined in the student handbook and the Code of Conduct for Derby Public Schools.

            A true athlete is someone of high moral character with a genuine work ethic. They contribute to a team in many different roles and always strive for improvement and efficient execution of skills, in practice as well as in competition. Play hard, play fair, and dedicate yourself to be the best you can possibly be, but most importantly, have fun! The rewards will stay with you for the rest of your life.
