Athletics plays an important part in the lives of SUHSD students. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic programs. Athletic participation also plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.

The interscholastic athletic program shall be conducted in accordance with existing Board of Education policies, rules and regulations. While the Board of Education takes great pride in winning, it does not condone "winning at any cost" and discourages any and all pressures, which might tend to neglect good sportsmanship and good mental health. At all times, the athletic program must be conducted in such a way so as to justify it as an educational activity.

Throughout the course of an athletic season, there may be a time where a student athlete or parent may have questions or concerns. In order to address and value these questions and/or concerns, please communicate directly with your coaching staff to collaboratively work towards positive solutions. In an event where your questions and/or concerns have not been addressed, a need may present itself to discuss further with the Administrative Vice Principal that oversees Athletics at your home school. SUHSD students, staff, and parents pride themselves in honoring the game with positive sportsmanship and integrity at all times.

  • Peninsula Athletic League (PAL)
    The Peninsula Athletic League is an 17 member school league. It was formed into a CCS "Super League" in 1996 with the merging of the former NPL and PAL into one big basic league. Schools in our league are geographically located from Atherton to Daly City. Our 17 member schools are divided into "divisions" or "supplemental leagues" by sport according to the strength of each school's program in that particular sport. Our Bay Division is the strongest of our two Bay and Ocean Divisions. We also include a Lake Division in Girls Soccer, Boys Golf and Baseball. Basketball is divided up geographically into North and South Divisions. The league is governed by a Board of Managers consisting of the Principal of each school. The Athletic Directors from each of our schools meet and make recommendations on many issues to our Board of Managers.
