THe EHS AThletic department mission statement
The Ellington High School Athletic Department strives to be a model program in the CIAC by providing student-athletes the opportunity to develop mentally, physically, ethically and socially. Our expectation is to reach the highest level of success in the classroom and on the playing field through the following tenets:
Providing academic assistance to enhance the academic success of all student-athletes, and enable each student to realize their full academic potential.
By hiring coaches of the highest quality and providing opportunities for athletes to improve their athletic skill throughout the year with practice, training and competition. As a result, athletes will be prepared to continue their athletic career at the post-secondary level.
Our athletes, staff and fans will respect the sport, themselves and others both on and off the field of competition by fostering an appreciation of the benefits of hard work, motivation and perseverance in both winning and losing situations.
Engage the Ellington community as full partners in furthering the mission of our program by publicly recognizing those individuals and groups who support the athletic program, and by encouraging fans, students, alumni and members of the community to attend sporting events.
