Participating in athletics at Humphreys High School is a privilege that is extended to all students who wish to practice and compete as a member of a team. Athletes assume responsibilities to their school and to their teammates when they choose to play sports at Humphreys High School and participate within interscholastic activities guidelines mandated by the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) Korea District.
Humphreys High School students are representatives of their country, its military services, and their school while traveling to other locations in the Pacific region and competing against DoDDS schools, international schools, and Korean schools. The highest standards of sportsmanship, conduct, and decorum are expected of athletes.
The primary goal of athletic participation at Humphreys High School is to develop the athletic talents, physical skills, and emotional maturation of students as members of a team. Winning is important because success is measured by results, but effort and sportsmanship are also important and a balance must be maintained between winning, effort, and sportsmanship in measuring the success of a team or the athletic program.
Athletes are selected for teams based on their athletic talent, physical skills, and emotional maturity. No player is guaranteed a specified or equal amount of playing time; the best players will play the most. However, athletes at Humphreys High School must understand that winning and losing are a team effort- no single player is responsible for winning a game and no single player is responsible for losing a game. Every practice and every game is a team effort.
Humphreys High School fields teams in football, baseball, girls’ volleyball, and boys’ and girls’ tennis, cross country, basketball, and soccer. Students must be in grades 9-12 and be less than 19 years of age by 1 September to participate in athletics.
