Athletics - Eligibility and Expectations for Athletes
Whitney High School competes in the Academy League. An updated schedule of all athletic events is available online.
Students interested in participating in sports should check with the Athletic Director, Jeff Day, for information about tryouts and/or listen to the weekly bulletin announced in homerooms.
Student athletes must turn in physical forms, parent permission cards, and maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average to practice and play. Student athletes are also expected to be positive representatives of WHS and follow the CIF Southern Section Code of Ethics and Sportsmanship. A suggested donation of $120* and purchase of ASB card for the year is requested of each athlete to help purchase equipment, uniforms, transportation, and other related expenses. This can be paid online or in the finance office.
Absences from classes due to sporting events will be excused beforehand by the coaches- a list of participating team members is to be put in teacher mailboxes prior to the athletic event.
Certain events will be designated as the Spirit Games. Students who attend register with the ASB Commissioner to earn points for their class in the yearlong ongoing competition between classes. Spirit points are regularly announced.
