Athletics and Activities at Keokuk are a unique tool in the educational process. Our goal is to make these sports and activities some of the most educational experiences in our students' career here at Keokuk.
We want students who are willing to compete at a high level and be willing to accept challenges in practice and in competition in order to allow us to compete at the highest level possible. It is our goal to not only have exceptional student/athletes but to also have students who excel in every aspect of the classroom. We want to give our students experiences that will allow them to learn, mature and lead. We want to challenge our students hard enough in practice so that when they get in a competition they can handle any adversity that they are faced with. We also want to do this in an environment that allows freedom for students to make decisions and the guidance for them to be able to make the right choices and to correct mistakes.
Our programs are challenging and rewarding. We have high expectations for our programs as people, students and players. The expectations of our staff will not only challenge students, but also serve to guide and support them.
After graduation, a student is left with one thing from his involvement in our programs - the "experience". The "experience" refers to the lessons and values learned, the personal relationships that develop and being a part of something larger than themselves. This is an awesome opportunity and one that is often hard to duplicate in other areas of life.
This is the standard set here in the Keokuk Activities Department and is one that comes with great pride and a responsibility to lead your programs to be the very best in order to help better students as they go through their careers here. Doing this with great enthusiasm each and every day will ensure that we succeed as a program and as a school. It is a great day to be a Chief!
