Philosophy, Goals and Principles

Vision Statement

In the spirit of a secondary school that provides its students with educational opportunities both broad and deep, the Simsbury High School Athletic Department is committed to sustaining one of the most wide-ranging and outstanding athletic programs for young men and women in the United States. The athletic program plays an essential role in teaching students to conduct themselves with honesty and integrity, make sacrifices, strive for excellence, persevere through adversity, and compete with sportsmanship and pride while developing a commitment to teamwork and the Simsbury community.

Simsbury High School believes strongly that its athletic program should represent the same level of excellence and diversity found throughout the institution, thereby providing the opportunity and encouragement for each student-athlete to reach his/her fullest intellectual and athletic potential. The common goal among the Simsbury Athletic Administration, exceptional Coaching Staff, and outstanding scholar-athletes is to achieve success at the highest level possible while abiding by the standards of good sportsmanship and ethical conduct. At Simsbury High School we expect to produce scholar-athletes whose performance in the classroom and on the fields of play are a reflection of the values of this institution and the Simsbury community.

Mission Statement

The Simsbury Department of Athletics strives for excellence by providing student-athletes with a broad, comprehensive program that will allow students to develop an appreciation for integrity, discipline, teamwork and sportsmanship in the competitive venue of their choosing as they develop the skills necessary to reach a meaningful standard of athletic performance and community citizenship.
