Athletics Mission

TCS Athletics Mission Statement 
Participation in high school athletics is a privilege, which carries with varying degrees of honor, responsibility, and sacrifice. Each athletic director, coach, student- athlete and parent is a representative of the community and Tuscaloosa City School district. Since competition is a privilege and not a right, those who chose to participate shall be expected to follow the policies and procedures established by the AHSAA and Tuscaloosa City School district.

TCS Athletics Philosophy
The goal of the athletic department at each school is to provide the opportunities for student-athletes to excel in teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and character. The purpose is to provide each participant with experiences that will be positive and memorable and that help develop the capacity for commitment to a cause, acceptance of responsibility, and loyalty towards any chosen endeavor.

AHSAA Mission Statement
The mission of the Alabama High School Athletic Association is to regulate and coordinate interscholastic athletic competition in an equitable manner while promoting the values of interscholastic athletics as an integral part of a student’s educational experience. The AHSAA represents its member schools by recognizing and promoting academics, sportsmanship, participant safety and lifelong values as the foundation of interscholastic athletics.
