John F. Kennedy Athletic Policy
Athletics are an integral part of the educational program at JFK, and athletic experiences are considered an extension of the educational environment. The interscholastic sports program encourages individual participation and achievement by giving every student an opportunity to learn and play sports competitively. Participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and interscholastic athletics is a privilege, not a right. Students who successfully meet the school’s academic requirements and adhere to the code of conduct will be given the privilege of participating in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities as well as interscholastic athletics.
In grades 9-12, the competitive aspects of athletics are emphasized. The benefits to students include learning to implement advanced skills and tactics within team roles, the appreciation of success in team goals and the satisfaction that comes from working hard toward shared endeavors.
