I would like to welcome all new and returning student athletes, along with their families, to the 2017-18 academic school year! Here at Western Sierra, we are excited to get the sport seasons started. We will offer over 24 different athletic teams that the students from grades 7-12 can choose to participate based upon school grade level and season of sport.

Athletic funding
We have been fortunate these past 4 years to have the support of families that have made financial contributions to our athletic department in support of our programs. The Voluntary Athletic Contribution (VAC) was successful and helped us meet the costs for fields, uniforms, equipment, officials, coaches, etc. Moving forward, we are excited to be a part of launching a new annual giving campaign within our Rocklin Academy Family of Schools. We will work closely with our PSP and support the roll-out that will be announced at the Back to School night in a few weeks.

Sports Physicals
If you are a high school student athlete, grades 9-12,  you must have a current physical on file. This yearly physical must be completed by a medical professional with a clearance form that authorizes you to participate in athletics. These forms are available under the Forms tab. Completed forms must be turned in to the athletic department.
We have always had strong support from the community and our parents in meeting the coaching needs of our programs. If you are interested, please contact me to discuss.

Parent/Coach Communication

I would like to share with you a document, located under the Student Athlete Parent Handbook tab, for parents and coaches centered around the communication expectations for all concerned. As our athletic programs continue to grow, the communication process, in what can be a very passionate environment, should be understood and appreciated. Please open and read this document to see the expectations for parents and coaches that will help everyone create a positive experience for our students.

This two-page tri-fold will be available in hard copy as needed.
I am excited to get this year going! Your students are developing a clear focus towards positive attitudes, academics, work ethic, and sportsmanship. Together, we will win and have fun!
