Orland High School believes that a sports program can benefit students in many ways that are valuable to both the student and to our community:
Develop scholarship, health, strength, agility, coordination skills, recreational interests, physical fitness and habits of clean living
Learn sportsmanship, fair play, honesty and respect for rules and authority
Develop qualities of cooperation, teamwork, competition, leadership, initiative, responsibility, subordination of self to the welfare of the team and school, self-respect, courtesy for others, perseverance and courage
Interscholastic athletic competition should demonstrate high standards of ethics and sportsmanship and promote the development of good character and other important life skills. The highest potential of sports is achieved when participants are committed to pursuing victory with honor according to six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship (the "Six Pillars of Character"). This Code applies to all student-athletes involved in interscholastic sports in California.
