Athletics are an integral part of a well-rounded education. Not only can a Mount Carmel Student excel and grow in the classroom, but he/she may do the same on the playing field. Mount Carmel offers several sports for both boys and girls. They are as follows:
- Track & Field
- Other activities as may be planned
Athletics in its proper place promotes sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork and health. Mount Carmel High School (MCHS) participates in sports events endorsed by BCAPPS and by BAPPSS – NSSSA (WSSSA at the local level). MCHS also coordinates intra-mural sports activities for all students through its House system. Students are encouraged to participate and or cheer for their schoolmates.
Members of Mount Carmel teams are representatives of the school both at home and away. Appropriate conduct on and off the field is a reflection of the standard of quality that Mount Carmel expects of all its students. The school insists that the highest measure of sportsmanship and a wholesome relationship with our opponent schools be maintained at all times. Individual leadership and responsibility are required to fulfill these expectations. Anyone who fails to live according to this standard will lose the privilege of participating.
Each member of a Mount Carmel team is expected to put academics before athletics. If a student has academic or disciplinary problems, that individual’s participation will be decided on a case by case basis.
Being a part of any team requires working together. This requites practice and discipline, not only as individuals, but as a team. Therefore, practice is a required part of athletics. Working together also requires the dedication and hard work of a coach. That coach is the leader of the team. Anyone who fails to practice or to communicate with and follow his or her coach may lose athletic privileges.
Any individual who participates in athletics strives for health on and off the field. Each member is expected to follow the school rules on drugs and alcohol. If those rules are violated, the individual will lose athletic privileges.
