PHILOSOPHY

The Keene Central School Athletic Program believes that athletics is an integral part of the school’s total educational program. The main goal of the KCS interscholastic athletic program is to promote personal growth and provide meaningful and fun experiences within a safe and healthy environment.

The highs and lows of athletic competition are achieved through hard work, dedication, discipline and teamwork. The rewards are in the development of fond memories and personal achievements. At KCS, no student is refused an opportunity to participate in athletics. The athletic program is distinct from yet complimentary to the physical education curriculum at KCS.

The KCS Athletic Program promotes:
  • The development of personal traits which include a work ethic, self discipline, sportsmanship and self esteem
  • A healthy attitude towards competition
  • Life skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship
  • Athletic and educational opportunities beyond school
  • Individual and team skill development and habits for lifelong health and well-being
    • Modified (Grades 7, 8, 9)
