Athletics


Sanford H. Calhoun High School Athletic Philosophy

Interscholastic athletics at S.H. Calhoun High School is an integrated part of our school’s total educational program. While recognizing that academic achievement is our school’s priority, we expect that our interscholastic program will enhance the quality for our student’s lives and expand their options for learning and personal growth. We strive to develop and realize individual and team potential by promoting high standards of competence, character, civility and citizenship.

It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory. However, the number of victories is only one measure of success. Ultimately, the real challenge is guiding the individual and the team to reach full potential. This is the true measure of achievement. The competitive athletic environment is one that demands respect for a full effort, and applause for those who rise to the challenge and accept the risk of defeat. Those who are successful in life are those who have learned to embrace challenge, and take personal risks. Dedication and self-sacrifice on the athletic field does not always result in victory over the opponent. However, if one strives towards reaching full potential, with a passion and perseverance, personal victories that last a lifetime is the end reward, even though the win-loss record may not always meet expectations.

The interscholastic athletic program at S.H. Calhoun High School offers student athletes the opportunities to develop and exercise good character, competence, civility, citizenship and responsibility on and off the playing field. Participation in athletics is a privilege and not a “right”. At the beginning of all seasons, mandatory coaches meetings are held for all Varsity and Junior Varsity teams for student-athletes and their parent(s) or guardian(s). In addition, a Code of Conduct Form must be filled out and signed by student-athletes and their parent(s) and/or guardian(s) in order for the student-athlete to compete. This form needs to be filled out for each season and kept on file in the assistant principal’s office. Please click on the link "Sports Candidates Forms" on the left to get the forms you will need.

Calhoun High School’s Interscholastic Athletic program offers a wide variety of individual and team sports. There are three sport seasons’, which includes opportunities in a junior varsity program, and culminates in a varsity level experience.
