Interscholastic sports at Rich Township High School form part of a diverse co-curricular program. The activities are regarded as vital parts of the total educational offerings of our school. The sound development of the physical capacities of youth compliments and enhances the intellectual, emotional, and social development of every young man and woman. These opportunities are useful tools in the achievement of the goals of a comprehensive education.
We encourage student participation in the athletic program and would like to involve as many students as possible in an educationally sound and successful competitive, interscholastic experience. High School athletics is a competitive experience, therefore not all will make the team, nor do all those who make the team receive the same participation opportunities in contest. Ultimately, the participation level of individuals is a staff decision.
Rich Township’s dedication to excellence extends to our competitive athletic program. In this endeavor the Interscholastic Athletic Program serves as one of the extensions of the classroom, attempting to provide many learning opportunities and enhancing the learning which occurs within the classroom. All team members, regardless of ability, will be afforded opportunities to develop their work ethic, sense of commitment and social and athletic skills.
