Program Philosophy & Athlete Expectations

R.F. Staples Secondary School recognizes that extracurricular athletics promotes sportsmanship, team building, good citizenship, high academic standards, and community responsibility.  Extracurricular athletics provide an opportunity for students to explore their unique talents outside of the classroom setting.  These activities demand a high level of commitment, excellence, and self-motivation, which will help prepare students for the challenges they will meet outside the school community.

It is a privilege for students to participate in extracurricular athletics.  Participation is voluntary and is not a requirement, nor an entitlement.  Therefore, extra time and effort are required of those who participate.  Since the reputation of the school is often judged by its extracurricular programs, high standards must be maintained.  Those who earn the privilege of representing RF Staples Secondary School in extracurricular athletics are expected to accept greater responsibilities as school citizens.

Participation in extracurricular athletics is open to all students provided they meet the general requirements as outlined in this handbook, and any requirements specific to the activity of their choice.

For more information about academic and behavioural expectations, please consult the Athletic Handbook 2018-19 or the Athletes Code of Conduct

Alberta School Athletic Associaton (ASAA)

The R.F. Staples Athletic Program is part of the North Central division of the Alberta School Athletic Association (NCASAA). Membership in the NCASAA allows our school teams to participate in zone and provincial tournaments. Representatives of schools that hold memberships in the NCASAA and ASAA vote on the policies and regulations that all school team sports will follow, keeping in mind the best interest of all student-athletes in their respective zone and province. To continue our school’s membership in these associations, the administration, coaches, and student-athletes must abide by these policies. For more information, please visit or read the ASAA Parent/Guardian brochure.
