Overview of High School Athletics

The interscholastic athletic program will use competitive experiences to aid students in the development of favorable habits and attitudes that will prepare them for adult life in a democratic and pluralistic society. The program shall be conducted in accordance with VPA, School Board, U-32, and team policies and regulations. At all times the interscholastic program will be conducted in such a way so as to justify it as an educational and co-curricular activity.

Our students will learn and grow to be effective citizens. Working successfully in our society requires that a person learn teamwork, develop self-discipline, have respect for authority and embrace hard work and sacrifice.

The U-32 interscholastic athletic program is highly competitive at most levels of participation. Student-athletes are expected to be at all practices, games and team functions. Specific sports or teams may be more selective based upon student abilities and tryouts may occur. Playing time is not guaranteed and all members of a team may or may not see playing time in each contest.

Additionally, in some sports, the student-athlete will be responsible for the purchase and maintenance of part of, or all of, the appropriate safety equipment.

Prerequisites to participate in interscholastic sports:

Full-time student status
Under 19 years of age
Proof of public or private health insurance
Current physical examination on file at U-32
Participation & Consent Form and Medical Form on file with the Athletic Department (may be picked up in the Athletic Director's Office)

The athletic year is divided into three sports seasons – fall, winter and spring. Students may select only one sport in each season.
