Athletic Philosophy

Interscholastic athletics play an integral role in the complete high school educational experience. In administering the athletic program, efforts will be made to offer those activities that meet the needs and interests of the students, to provide the best possible facilities, and to provide qualified coaching personnel. The health and the welfare of the participants are the primary concerns of the athletic program.

The interscholastic athletic program at Noble High School is a key part of Noble’s co-curriculum offerings. The program provides opportunities and emphasizes goals that are difficult to duplicate or achieve in other high school activities. The coaches of interscholastic sports have an opportunity to achieve many educational goals outside of the classroom with small groups of highly motivated students. For many students, athletics provides an opportunity for rich and enduring learning experiences.

M.S.A.D. #60 seeks to develop responsible decision makers, teach the essential skills necessary to meet the demands of a changing world and develop caring and contributing members of a multicultural world. This mission guides the work of the athletic department and our coaches. The academic success of all student-athletes is one of the department’s top priorities.

In addition to academic success, the athletic department strives to develop: sportsmanship, leadership, work habits, a competitive spirit, a winning attitude and team and school loyalty. Our athletes are also expected to display ethical conduct and fair play by showing respect for fellow players, coaches, officials, opposing teams, and fans. Finally, student-athletes are expected to be model students in the classroom through their effort and their respect shown to school staff and adherence to school rules and expectations.
