Bison Athletics Program Philosophy
The athletic program at Ardrossan Junior/Senior High School is concerned with the development of the individual and athlete as a whole. The program is designed to challenge the students to develop personal successes in various athletics, while also encouraging the formation of a value system that includes fair play, integrity, and respect. With a positive learning experience being ensured by knowledgeable coaches and administrators at the helm, the program will promote excellence in the area of competitve athletics. It is important that each "Bison" athlete understand that winning is important, however, how we achieve that win is much more important.
a) The development of physical skills and a strong self concept which will enable participation in a wide variety of athletics at a highly competitive level;
b) The development of social skills which promote exemplary standards of behaviour and positive relationships with others in a competitve atmosphere;
c) The installment of knowledgeable coaches with positive attitudes that facilitate a positive learning enviroment for athletes to develop in;
d) The development of an excellent communication base with athletes, parents, coaches, and the press so as to facilitate the programs successfully;
e) Provide access to home based competitions and tournaments designed to challenge athletes, showcase our athletics, and above all, provide enjoyment to our student body
