November 28, 2015 – 07:00 PM
The Staff/Alumni Game will be held in the Poway High Gym on Saturday November 28 at 7:00PM. It is an entertaining game and all proceeds go to back to the teams to help fund uniforms, balls, buses, referees, etc.
Schedule for All Teams - Updated
The schedules for all teams can be found in the Handouts, Schedules and Calendar.
Note; The Frosh league schedule is not out until the North County Conference finalizes which schools will be fielding Freshmen teams. This usually happens in early December.
Booster Board Members and Volunteers Needed
For the teams to be successful, we need to have a strong volunteer corp. There are currently board positions as well as volunteer opportunities available. Over the past three years I have seen the board and volunteerism increase but last year we had a decline in Freshmen volunteers. It is critical to keep the pipeline following with experienced people as it makes all of the tasks so much easier to perform.
If you are interested, you can contact any of the current board members. Our contact information is in the Contact Info section of the website.
Athletic Handbook is Available in the Handouts Section
All parents, student athletes and coaches are required to know the information contained in the handbook and are expected to conduct themselves accordingly.
It is also available on the PHS Athletic website and is required reading prior to trying out for a sport.
Pursuing Victory With Honor
From the CIFSDS Website:
“Pursuing Victory With Honor,” in essence, provides the tools to teach character development skills to the student-athletes of California high schools.
“Pursuing Victory With Honor” came about through the Arizona Accord Conference, where major sports and educational leaders met in Scottsdale, Arizona to discuss the ethical and character-building aspects of athletic competition, with the hope that the framework of principles and values set forth would be adopted and practiced widely. The Josephson Institute of Ethics, CHARACTER COUNTS! Coalition and the United States Olympic Committee convened the conference on May 12-14, 1999. Invited to attend were 50 major sports leaders including Olympian John Naber, coaching legend John Wooden, NBC commentator Bob Costas, former CIF Executive Director Jack Hayes, college and university presidents, coaches and athletic directors from major universities, Olympic coaches and athletes as well as representatives of the national sports media and national youth organizations.
The CIF unanimously adopted the principles of “Pursuing Victory With Honor” at its November 5, 1999, Federated Council meeting, consisting of educational leaders representing California’s then-1,263 high schools (now 1,500+). The CIF recognizes the impact that high school athletics can play in society and is committed to the character-building goals of the program. In fact, the CIF felt so strongly about the 16 principles of the program that these have been made the operating principles of the organization.
Together, the CIF and its member schools can change the very nature of high school athletics and bring back the character, sportsmanship, ethics and integrity that high school sports can instill.
“Pursuing Victory With Honor” and the “Six Pillars of Character” are service marks of the CHARACTER COUNTS! Coalition, a project of the Josephson Institute of Ethics. For more information on promoting character education and good sportsmanship, visit www.charactercounts.com.
