The Athletic Department is an integral part of the total educational process of Stephenville ISD. Being involved in athletics provides the student with opportunities to develop leadership skills and to learn the ideals of fair play and ethical behavior which are necessary for competition and cooperation in our society. It should also provide our students with the unique opportunities for self-discipline, self-sacrifice, and loyalty to the community, the school, and the team.
Stephenville ISD encourages all students to participate in athletics by offering a well-rounded program of interscholastic athletics for both young men and women.
Competition and cooperation are prized in our culture, and both are fostered by a well-conducted athletic program under competent leadership. Athletics which are regulated to meet educational objectives can provide a major contribution to the physical and moral development of students.
Our coaches are primarily responsible for the compliance by their squad members to all rules, regulations, and policies governing athletics at Stephenville ISD. The above includes all UIL, district, and local policies which govern participation in Stephenville ISD athletics.
Compliance is enhanced when athletes and their parents are informed of and understand the policies. All coaches (and their direct support: assistant coaches and “walk on” staff such as student teachers) are directly responsible to the office of the Athletic Director for the application of these rules and regulations. The Athletic Director will administer these rules and regulations as they relate to inter-squad and inter coach relationships.
We are proud to be associated with all of the student-athlete of Stephenville ISD and promise that we will dedicate ourselves to upholding the proud tradition of Stephenville ISD athletics.
