    The interscholastic athletics philosophy of the SCASD identifies the standards for participation and playing time at each level of sport activity.

    Middle School/Junior High

    At the Middle school/junior high level, athlete participation and development of skills in a sport are valued above the winning of contests.

    Junior Varsity

    At the junior varsity level, instruction and the development of individual skills for all athletes continues to be emphasized. However, team success in interschool competition is also valued.

    Varsity

    At the varsity level, coaches have the dual responsibility of fostering individual skill development and achieving team success. To achieve this end, the most effective student-athletes, regardless of grade level, will be given the opportunity to further develop their athletic abilities and to work together to develop a strong desire to attain the highest possible levels of team success.

    It is the charge of each sports team's coaches solely to make determinations regarding playing time based upon their observation and evaluation of athletes during try-outs, practices and competitions in accord with the principles of the SCASD's philosophy of interscholastic athletics.
