Competitive athletics are a part of the overall educational opportunities presented to the students of Modesto City Schools. The nature of competitive sports lends itself to attracting and servicing the more physically-talented student; however, all students have the opportunity to try out for the various teams. MCS coaches are sensitive to the variety of racial, ethnic, socioeconomic and religious orientations of our student athlete and they make every effort to assimilate and include all players into the team framework.
Throughout the program, and at all levels of competition, special effort is given so that each athlete will have an opportunity to develop the traits of responsibility, sound values, team work, sportsmanship, leadership, honesty, discipline and physical fitness. We believe that competitive athletics is an arena where students can grow mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially.
