• CPHS Athletic Department Philosophy

    Welcome to Crown Point Athletics,

    Crown Point High School takes pride in providing opportunities for all student athletes through the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) sponsored activities. Interscholastic athletics is historically a significant part of the total educational program. They offer opportunity for students to be a part of a team, to serve their school, to enjoy fellowship, and to develop intellectually, physically and emotionally.

    We believe that Crown Point High School Athletics provide a unifying influence within our student body and between our school and community. The Crown Point athletic family will endeavor to provide each participant with positive experiences that will help them develop their own philosophy toward commitment, responsibility, and loyalty which will guide them for post-school competition in society. We believe that the will to win is a natural human trait and entirely desirable, but this urge whether individual or collective, is not to be attained at the price of unfair advantage or gained through violation of established rules and principles. The desire to win is important, but will never outweigh the welfare of the athlete and will be kept in perspective towards the balance of what is good for the team and the individual.

    If athletics are to be sponsored by the educational system, then athletics must be educative. The educative process must continue into the realm of responsibility. We cannot escape the thought that responsibility lies with all of us. Responsibility is a big part of athletics at Crown Point High School. Responsibility to ones team, self and family is the most important aspects of education within the athletic department.

    Crown Point Bulldog Athletics and spectators can be proud of a program that is helping our athletes become the best that they can be in many aspects. Through the experiences gained through athletics, each student athlete can reach his/her potential both while in school, and later as a contributing member of society.
    Go Dogs,
