Welcome to Wayne-Westland Community Schools Athletics!

Athletic Mission Statement:  

Wayne-Westland Community Schools recognizes that extracurricular activities are an integral part of our educational system.  Therefore, the Athletic Department, in cooperation with the community, endeavors to create a sports program to assist students in reaching their potential as individuals and as team members to ensure their positive educational experience.  

No Pay To Play

In Wayne-Westland Community Schools, we believe in the importance of educational athletics and we want ALL of our students to be able to participate.  Therefore we have chosen NOT to have any participation fees for our student athletes.   This is true for ALL athletic teams that the district sponsors.  So there are no participation fees charged for elementary, middle or high school sports teams.  

Athletic Philosophy:

The school athletic program will provide students with an opportunity to be selected as members of a sports team based upon personal physical skill level, motivation, and desire.  Emphasis will be placed on the improvement of each student’s character development and acquisition of knowledge and physical sports skills. The welfare of the student athlete will be the rule.  Efforts will be made to support the activities program with the best facilities, equipment, and the most qualified staff available.  The ultimate goal of the activities will be to realize the value of participation, strive for excellence, keep a proper competitive spirit, and develop and improve positive citizenship.  Student athletes will apply the knowledge learned to be lifelong healthy individuals.
