Matt Addington ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL/ATHLETIC DIRECTOR ,
The athletic and activity programs are Florence Jr/Sr High School are an integral part of the school's curriculum. It is the belief of the coaches, administrators and teachers that athletics provides real life learning opportunities for student athletes and promotes respect, responsibility, work ethic, personal sacrifice, teamwork, loyalty and sportsmanship. Athletics develops and reveals one's true character in the face of both winning and losing. As an elective, interscholastic athletics is open to all students who meet the requirements set by CHSAA and Florence Jr/Sr High School. It must be remembered that participation is a privilege and not a right, trying out for a team does not guarantee a sport on the roster or playing time.
Student-athletes at Florence Jr/Sr High School are asked to meet very high standards, some which are more stringent then those set by CHSAA or other schools. The athletic portion of the FJSHS student handbook is printed in on the next four pages and details the policies and procedures in regard to academic eligibility, team selection procedures, training rule violations, attendance requirements, unlawful acts, and the new commitment date and completion rule.
