The Tecumseh Local Schools believes that:
Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the school's educational process. Participation in a sound athletic program contributes to the development of health, happiness, physical skills, emotional maturity, social competence, moral values, and self-discipline of the individual.
Athletics teaches participants the value of cooperation and competition in achieving team goals.
The purpose of interscholastic athletics is to offer opportunities of participation to as many students as possible and to further students' interests in competition by developing a comprehensive program.
