Highlands County Athletics

~ Welcome to Highlands County Athletics ~

Highlands County is a member of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). Athletics builds our communities through the engagement of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and creates a threshold for Avon Park, Lake Placid, and Sebring to connect in a positive experience.

~ Athletic Mission Statement ~

The athletic programs are an integral part of the overall educational experience. Athletics provide opportunities for physical, mental, emotional, and social development. Competition through athletics is viewed as a valuable experience because it challenges each student-athlete to strive for excellence, helps each student athlete discover their physical limits, and requires each student-athlete to work cooperatively as a member of a team. While winning is a natural goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship take precedence at all times and enhance the educational value of all contests.

~ Athletics Guarantee Every Athlete 3 Inherent Rights ~

      • To be coached
      • To improve their health through strength and conditioning
      • To compete for athletic opportunities

Everything else is a privilege.
