Philosophy of the Knight High School Athletic Program
Knight interscholastic athletic competition strives to demonstrate high ethical standards and sportsmanship. Knight believes the highest potential of sports is achieved when participants are committed to pursuing victory with honor according to five core principles: positive, respect, integrity, discipline, and excellence. This Code applies to all student-athletes, coaches, parents, and staff.
All Knight athletic programs must be congruent with Knight High School’s academic goals and objectives established for the intellectual, physical, social, and moral development of our students. Knight teams place academic achievement as the highest priority. We show respect for teammates, opponents, officials, and coaches, as well as the integrity and judgment of game officials. Knight exhibits fair play, sportsmanship, and proper conduct on and off the playing field both by adhering to the established rules and standards of the game to be played, and by refraining from the use of profanity, vulgarity, and other offensive language and gestures. We maintain a high level of safety awareness through respect for and use of all appropriate equipment and use it safely and appropriately. Knight athletes refrain from the use of alcohol, tobacco, illegal and non-prescriptive drugs, or any substance to increase physical development or performance.
