The Ferris Independent School District believes that the district athletic program should be an integral part of the total educational process.
The purpose of Ferris ISD Athletic program is to ensure and enhance the quality of life for youth by providing competitive activities. The pitting of one’s skills, knowledge, and talent against friendly opponents is a means of learning one’s own strengths and weaknesses.
Good contests properly supervised, give youthful competitors the opportunity to gain self-confidence, improve skills, exhibit good sportsmanship, ethical behavior and integrity. Sports programs help the participant to develop physically, morally and mentally.
Athletic offerings within the district are competitive and diversified, thereby allowing students the opportunity to realize their full potential relative to growth and development. All programs are designed not only to teach athletic skills, but also to instill good character and teach sound values.
I feel that the success of the athletic program sets the tone for the entire school year. It builds a positive self-image for the individual athlete, the team, the school, the community, and most importantly, for Ferris I.S.D
It is our final goal that sports activities will produce young men and women who will be able to enter the community and become constructive contributing members of society: citizens that will leave their mark on this world by making it a better place for future generations.
