PIL Athletics Mission Statement
The mission of our High School Athletics is to promote participation and sportsmanship through a competitive interscholastic athletic program.
Every athlete is provided with opportunities, positive recognition, and learning experiences that support and maximize the academic goals of our High School.
Athletics utilizes experiences that are inherently educational to foster lifelong lessons such as teamwork and self-discipline, while facilitating the physical and emotional development of our student athletes.
Franklin Athletic Philosophy
Franklin High School is committed to the values taught by athletic competition: sportsmanship, self-discipline, and perseverance. Most importantly, Franklin’s athletic teams provide an opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to learn the value of teamwork, cooperation, and mutual respect. Through participation in athletics, students will mature physically, emotionally, and socially.
Participation in athletics is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the activity, to the student body, to the community, and to the students themselves. At FHS, we are proud of the behavior and sportsmanship displayed by players, coaches, and supporters. We value healthy rivalry, encourage spirited and fair play, and appreciate positive support offered by spectators.
Franklin players, coaches, and fans represent themselves, their teams, and their School with pride and poise. We treat visiting teams and officials as guests, extending to them every courtesy. We are modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
