Athletic Director: Rebecca Dooley
The mission of Vista Peak Exploratory athletics and activities is to provide opportunities for students that maximize student engagement, participation and achievement. Student athletes are expected to display a competitive spirit, exhibit good sportsmanship and meet our standards for behavior and academic effort.
We believe that participation in athletics and activities is a powerful tool for the academic and personal growth of our students. The work habits and character development necessary to be successful in athletics and activities have a direct influence on a student’s academic and personal achievement.
The following needs to be completed and handed in prior to participation in any school sponsored athletic practice or event:
Registration Form / Parent Permission
Physical History Form / Physical Examination Form - Expires each year
Athletic Fee of $35 per sport - Checks can be made out to Vista PEAK, please include the child's name and grade on the check
Students will practice Monday - Friday from 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM on student contact days, unless there is a game or practice is canceled. Please check with each coach to find out their practice schedule. If your child is to be picked up, please be on time.
