The EDUCATIONAL focus of the interschool extracurricular sports program recognizes that TEACHER/COACHES are an integral part of the program in order to fulfull this goal.
The Windsor Essex County Secondary School Athletic Association must base its competitions on the principles of fair play, fairness, integrity, and respect. Consistently applied by everyone involved in W.E.C.S.S.A.A. sport programs, these principles provide an ethical framework for competition.
