Would the lack of a high school football program keep you from enrolling your children in that school district?

Our school doesn't have a football program and I'm trying to find out if it affects the number of people who decide to make their home in our town.

So, please give me some feedback. Would it matter to you?

Why or why not?

Although academics are my number one reason on sending my child to a school, the sports programs and fine arts programs are also a main consideration.
It is a reflection to me of how well-rounded the kids are in that school. It also helps the kids to engage in activities that allow them social experiences which is a very important part of growing up.

Even though I have a daugther, I know how much fun it was to go to high school football games and to cheer on our team etc. It was a BLAST and it was something to do Friday nights. I went to a small school but we had an awesome football team my first two years. I wouldnt make it my main consideration but I'd take it into account. I still have the memories and the great pictures from the football games.

It wouldn't matter that much to me unless I were trying to sell steroids to minors. ;-)

If the school has a *good* football team and an established program....you can take it to the bank that MANY of the members on the team are on some sort of illegal boost.
