Elgin High School recognizes the importance of athletic activities in providing students with important opportunities for a total education.  Athletics teach students’ lifetime values such as commitment, discipline, hard work, leadership, teamwork and physical fitness, all of which are the foundation for academic success.  Participation in athletic activities contributes to the physical, emotional and social health of our students and promotes a sense of unity and cooperation among athletes, the student body, and the Elgin community.

Our athletic teams will strive to win district championships and state championships.  We will always emphasize excellence in effort, improvement and respect for teammates, coaches and officials.  Elgin athletics is designed to develop, promote and provide the following:  self-esteem, school spirit and pride, good citizenship, sportsmanship, cooperation and higher academic performance.

Above everything else our athletic program is based around One Town One Team One Family!
