East Stroudsburg Area School District
Athletic Program Philosophy
The East Stroudsburg Area School District Athletic Program serves as an integral part of the educational process for students grades 7-12. As a compliment to the academic component, our athletic program is structured to foster physical, social, emotional/intellectual, and moral development in all participants. In addition to promoting the skills identified in the district mission statement, the ESASD athletic program also emphasizes teamwork, good sportsmanship, leadership, and a competitive spirit. Participation in athletics is a privilege, not a right.
This athletic handbook is a written guide providing insight into the basic structures, procedures, and policies for all student-athletes, parents, community members, coaches, and administrators. As is the case with all components of an academic institution, success within our athletic program is based on all stakeholders working together for the betterment of our student-athletes.
