Welcome to the VUSD Athletics page!

Our athletic program aspires to train “Student-Athletes” in individual and team skills. The goals of the athletic program are building self-confidence, self-worth, sportsmanship, and a spirit of cooperation through teamwork. Even though winning is a desired end of competitive sports, winning should not take precedence over the goals listed above.

Over a season, each student-athlete on a team should have had an opportunity to improve their skills through organized practice. All eligible, “qualified” student-athletes should have the opportunity to participate in both practice and competitive games.
