The athletic program at St. Patrick St. Vincent High School seeks to provide an experience of high level competition which will enable students to develop athletic skills and personal qualities. We believe through athletics, students have the opportunity to learn the values of good sportsmanship, self-discipline, loyalty, leadership, and friendship.
At SPSV, academics and athletics go hand in hand. A student must maintain a 2.0 grade point average in order to participate on an athletic team.
As part of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) and North Coast Section (NCS), our boys and girls sport teams are members of the Tri Country Athletic League. Students of all grade levels are eligible to compete.
The CIF governs interscholastic athletics, promoting equity, quality, character and academic development.
- Equity – Equal opportunity without regard to race, gender, and ethnicity within all aspects of the athletic program for students, personnel, schools and governance.
- Quality– Training, education and commitment of coaches, officials, administrators and parents to improve the quality of athletic programs.
- Character– Trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship.
- Academic Development– Commitment to encourage academic growth is a high priority.
Athletic competition is an integral part of the high school experience. CIF is uniquely positioned to foster student growth in values and ethics. CIF’s ideal of “Pursuing Victory with Honor,” provides the opportunity to dramatically influence the actions of the athletic community. CIF strives to strengthen the integrity of students and adults across the state by promoting the concepts of sportsmanship, honesty and quality academics. These priorities advance the highest principles of character – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship.
