Athletic Department Philosophy
The goal of the PCCST Athletic program is to provide a rewarding experience for the students, give them the opportunity to represent their school and community in a positive way, create an environment that contributes to growth in school spirit, and develop the self-esteem and athletic skills of all student-athletes in the program. We plan to provide a quality program of which the students, parents, community and PCSST staff can be proud.
Athletic Department Mission
PCSST coaches must possess the ability to be positive role models and consistently demonstrate character, sportsmanship, emotional stability, and self-control. These characteristics will help develop PCSST student athletes into more responsible citizens with the understanding that athletics is a valuable experience.
PCSST believes individual students will benefit physically and intellectually through competitive interscholastic sports activities. PCSST believes that any athlete is a student first! Any person who wishes, may try out for any sports team. They must be academically eligible, complete all required forms, including a medical history form, which can be obtained from the coach of the sport the student wishes to join or from the Athletic Department page on the PCSST website.
