Athletic Philosophy
We believe that participation in interscholastic athletics is a vital part of the total educational experience. It is our aim to make available the opportunity to participate in athletics to all students at Erwin High School. With this premise, the athletic program of Erwin High School will be administered on the basis of educational values. These will include academic, attendance, and behavioral requirements, as well as adherence to North Carolina High School and National Federation of State High School rules. Within the framework of these regulations, the primary goal of the Erwin High School athletic program will be to provide for the growth and development of student athletes in a positive atmosphere that nurtures a positive self-concept. Emphasis will be placed on the physical, social, emotional, and academic growth of each student athlete. Our athletic program will seek for each participant to reach his or her fullest potential as a high school student athlete while always respecting the dignity of every athlete. We want to provide the best possible opportunity for our athletes to have a positive learning experience through interscholastic athletics.
