Burlington-Edison Athletics

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Athletic Program in Burlington-Edison School District schools is to promote, direct, and conduct interscholastic athletics in such a manner as to further the aims of general education, promote friendly relations with other schools, to encourage participation by students, and to teach good sportsmanship.

PHILOSOPHY

The Athletic Department is an integral part of the total educational process of Burlington-Edison Schools. Being involved in athletics provides our students 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.

Burlington-Edison Schools encourage 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.

Interscholastic athletics is a voluntary program. Students are not obligated to participate and participation is not required for graduation. Thus, competition in school athletics is a privilege and not a right. Accompanying this privilege is the responsibility to conform to standards established for the school

athletic program. This privilege may be revoked if the athlete fails or refuses to comply with the rules.

CORE COVENANTS

Our Core Covenants are what drives all of our processes and decisions. The Core Covenants were developed by our student-athletes and coaches.

It is part of what makes a Championship Culture at Burlington-Edison. The Core Values that have been established to define “What it means to be a Burlington-Edison Tiger?” are Character, Leadership, Integrity, and Commitment. Each coach will define these Core Values at the start of each season. It is expected that all student-athletes and coaches ingrain these into their programs.

Athletic Resources

With a partnership of our local Youth United and United Way of Skagit County, Burlington-Edison High School will now recognize and reward students for their volunteer efforts in the community. Students who volunteer 100 hours or more of service in a year can earn a school varsity letter, the same as those earned by athletes and musicians. Applicants must meet all requirements and guidelines. The program will be a work in progress for the first year.

Students meeting the requirements and earning a letter will be recognized at the end of the school year during the athletics/activities assembly on campus during the school day.
