    Welcome to Garfield Athletics!

    Athletics at Garfield High School is an integral part of the educational process.  It is meant to provide learning experiences for the students who participate.  It should help develop habits, attitudes and ideals necessary for ethical competition and cooperation in our society.  It should also provide our students with the unique opportunities for self discipline, self sacrifice and loyalty to the community, the school and the team.

    Garfield High School attempts to provide a well-rounded program of interscholastic athletics for both young men and women.  Students will be encouraged to participate in sports.

    Competition and cooperation are prized in our culture and both are fostered by an athletic program under competent leadership.

    Interscholastic athletics is a voluntary program.  thus, competition is a privilege and not a right  Along with the privilege and not a right.  Along with the privilege is the responsibility to conform to standards established for the high school athletic teams.  This privilege may be revoked when the athlete fails or refuses to comply with the rules. 

    As the people out front, students, parents and coaches have a unique opportunity to impact the future of athletics.  Before any sportsmanship related confrontation happens here, Garfield makes sportsmanship a personal goal.  No contest's outcome is worth an ugly incident due to some spur-of-the-moment action.  In spite all of our efforts, an incident may occur.  But if we have not practiced sportsmanship, we must shoulder the blame of the action. We must create an environment that is conducive to a higher goal than a win-at-all-costs environment.  If we are successful in this, we will have attained a more lasting mark than any championship could possibly bring.  Remember, victory with honor.

    We look forward to seeing all our students athletes in action over the year!  You are now part of the legacy that is Garfield - #B4L (Bulldogs for Life).

    Go Bulldogs!!
