As athletic director of the Moses Lake school system, it has been this writer's responsibility to organize, coordinate and conduct the athletic program. Moses Lake has been undergoing a period of tremendous growth, which has resulted in an increase of student enrollment and the necessity of increasing the athletic program. To effectively operate a good program under this condition, it has become necessary to establish some method which will serve the following purposes: (1) the dissemination of information concerning the athletic program for coaches, administrators, teachers, students and parents; (2) the clarification of athletic philosophy, duties, standards and regulations; (3) the method of keeping the athletic program in balance with the rest of the educational program; (4) the ease of coordination of the over-all athletic program.
