The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) is 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 its commitment to serve the District, student athletes, alumni, and friends. Further, it embraces the concept that the student athletes possess 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 students’ pursuit of lifetime activities, the value 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, EGUSD is committed to the values inherent in CIF’s high school athletics philosophy and places the integrity of our programs as our highest priority.
