Athletics Mission Statement
The primary purpose of the Athletic Department at Tecumseh High School is to help teach important life lessons through athletics. Our student athletes will learn that teamwork, dedication, discipline, respect, integrity, commitment, and hard work are an integral part of their everyday lives. It is the Athletic Department’s goal and objective to work with coaches, administration, faculty and staff of THS to make athletics an extension of the learning environment. Athletics at THS will strive to be a challenging but positive and rewarding experience for the student athletes who participate and will help develop and mold them into outstanding young adults.
