The mission of the North Technical High School Athletic Program is to provide opportunities and experiences for all students to develop:
One of the main goals of the North Tech Athletic Program is to teach the concept of sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship requires that everyone be treated with respect. This includes teammates, members of the opposing team, officials, coaches, and spectators. Contests are judged by the effort of the participants. Winning is exciting, but winning at any cost is not the goal of our program.
The following policy statement from the National Federation of State High School Associations expresses the concept of sportsmanship as follows:
"The ideals of good sportsmanship, ethical behavior, and integrity permeate our culture. The values of good citizenship and high behavioral standards apply equally to all activity disciplines. Good sportsmanship shall be defined as those qualities of behavior, which are characterized by generosity and a genuine concern for others. Participants must have an awareness of the impact of an individual's influence on the behavior of others. Good sportsmanship is viewed as a concrete measure of the understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior, and integrity."
