Philosophy

The Rec Sports philosophy is based on the concept that students should have freedom of choice, equality of opportunity, and opportunity to share in planning, supervising, and implementing the program. Sound Rec Sports Programs give all students an opportunity to enjoy satisfying recreational activities varying from highly competitive to those of a non-competitive nature. There are valuable outcomes which give immediate satisfactions and insure treasured memories in all types of activities. Participation in the Rec Sports Program can provide and contribute to good physical health and social adjustment.

Spirit of Competition

Team sports activities find their origin in the basic human need for the spirit of play. Winning and losing are mere outcomes of this play spirit. Abusive language toward officials and manipulation of the rules are not “part of the game”. What is part of the game is pure satisfaction of participation, getting fit and enhancing friendships. Without your opponent, you have no game, no contest and no fun. You are indebted to them, as they are to you. The spirit of play then is based on cooperation. Upholding high standards of integrity and fair play acknowledges this idea of cooperative competition. All players are encouraged to exercise good judgment in caring for the safety of others as well as themselves. At SJC, an intentional foul is considered cheating and a gross offense against the spirit of competition. The goal of lifetime sports for all players may have more meaning than that of a win or loss, the memory of which often fades quickly. All players are asked to participate within the context of this spirit of play/competition.
