The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) has long been known for its excellent athletic programs. We are proud of this reputation and recognize that athletics support our students’ physical, social, and academic development.
The Athletic Department strives to achieve the same standards of excellence in its athletic programs as exist within the District’s academic programs. The athletic program has a firm belief that all participants are students first and athletes second as is reflected by the District’s athletic eligibility policy. The Athletic Department recognizes a multiple commitment to serve the District, student athletes, alumni, and friends. Further, it embraces the concept that the student is first and foremost a student possessing individual rights, academic abilities, personal interests and ambitions comparable to those of other members of the student body.
The emphasis of the athletic program is to provide opportunities that encourage the pursuit of lifetime activities, a sense of commitment and teamwork, and the development of personal character while maintaining an environment that values cultural diversity and gender equity among its student athletes and athletic department staff. As a member, in good standing, of the California Interscholastic Federation, we are committed to the values inherent in CIF high school athletics philosophy and place preserving the integrity of the programs as the highest priority.
