Athletics are an excellent means of bringing together home, school, and community, while contributing to the personal growth, and education of students. The interscholastic athletic program should provide the opportunity to compete in athletic contests with other schools; contribute in a positive way toward the total development of participants; aid the student in acquiring new friendships; further community spirit; and develop good sportsmanship.
The overall purpose of the Puyallup School District is academic growth and success. Athletics do not supplant this purpose. It is the Athletics Department’s expectation that students will make appropriate progress toward academic expectations, requirement, and graduation.

PUYALLUP SCHOOL DISTRICT ATHLETIC MISSION STATEMENT
The Puyallup School District believes that interscholastic athletics must provide the opportunity for students to develop physically, socially, and emotionally throughout their secondary school career. Athletics and participation in athletics is one of the primary reasons that students feel a kinship with their schools and is a contributing factor in both student classroom success and the desire to stay in school.
