High School Athletics Program


Athletic Department Philosophy:

The athletic department is committed to enriching campus life through a program of interscholastic athletics and to promoting the development of qualities in the student-athlete that will serve the participating individual and the community.

Student-athletes not only learn about their sport but also about teamwork, dedication, responsibility and good sportsmanship while placing a high priority on academic excellence.

The athletic programs are based upon open communication and mutual respect among school administration, teachers, coaches, students, parents and officials.

As of the fall of 2014, Valley Catholic competes at the 4A level in the OSAA. We are also members of the Cowapa League for several of our sports. Certain sports such as cross country, soccer, tennis, golf and track and field compete at the 4A level in special districts.

We offer OSAA varsity teams in 19 sports and also JV and JV2 teams in many of these 19 sports. The sports include volleyball, boys and girls cross-country, boys and girls soccer, football, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls swimming, dance, baseball, softball, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls golf, and boys and girls track and field. We also offer boys lacrosse as a club sport.

Valley Catholic has a rich history in athletics. For the past three consecutive years, the school has won the Oregonian Cup at the 3A level. This prestigious award, received by Valley Catholic for the 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 academic years, is presented by the Oregonian newspaper and is awarded based on each school’s success in athletics, academics, sportsmanship and activities.

Valley was also selected as the Oregon Athletic Coaches Association top 3A athletics program for 2011-12. This honor is voted on and presented by coaches at the 3A level in Oregon.

Valley Catholic High School has a no-cut policy in athletics meaning all students can participate on an athletic team. Because of our no-cut policy we do not offer CYO sports at the high school level. Playing time and participation on the varsity teams is at the head coach’s discretion.
