Athletics Department Philosophy
The vision of the Mercy Athletics Department is to create team environments that embrace the six core values of: discipline, accountability, integrity, communication, commitment, and community to build successful teams and establish cultures that generate positive experiences for all our student-athletes.
The goal for Mercy Athletics is to develop a strong foundation of character to help our student-athletes lead a successful productive life beyond the parameters of sport. These core values will be the daily guide for the Mercy Athletics Department, i.e. all student-athletes, parents, coaches, and administrators. These pillars are the foundation of Mercy Athletics. Our athletics department will be defined by these values as standards are set for a high level of athletic and academic excellence. Our student-athletes will develop the skills needed to become strong leaders in their community empowered to change the world. The Mercy athletic experience will represent a strong sisterhood of trust and respect where we all believe in one goal, one mission, one Mercy.
Mercy Athletics believes that participation in our athletic program is an educational activity that contributes to the physical, personal, social, and spiritual growth of the student-athletes involved, and aids in the development of our student-athlete as a Christian person. Competitive athletics are an integral part of the total educational program and contributes to the overall wellness of our student-athletes. Because of this belief, we hold that the athletic department is an integral part of the entire school by supporting its philosophy and participating in achieving its goals. All interscholastic activities of the Mercy High School Athletic Department will maintain, in practice as well as in spirit, the ideals and standards that are the policy of Mercy High School, the West Bay Athletic League, the Central Coast Section, and the California Interscholastic Federation.
