Westfield Public Schools has a proud athletics tradition. Participation in athletics is a vital part of a student’s educational experience. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility to oneself, the team, the school and the community. The athletic program provides opportunities to help students acquire confidence, self-esteem, and discipline. Through athletics participation, the qualities of pride, sportsmanship, leadership, respect, and maturity can be developed.
As part of athletic participation, each athlete is responsible for following the rules and policies of the Westfield Public Schools, the Westfield Athletic Department, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA), the Massachusetts Secondary School Administrators' Association (MSSAA), the Massachusetts Vocational Athletics Directors Association and the Pioneer Valley Interscholastic Athletic Conference (PVIAC). Additional team rules may be established by each coach.
