Winning is not an outcome, Winning is an Attitude.
The fundamental purpose and goals of San Ramon Valley Athletic Department mirror the purpose and goals of the school in general. Specifically, San Ramon Valley High School recognizes that its interscholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total education program. It is our philosophy to provide a positive atmosphere of sportsmanship and learning, both at practice sessions, and at interscholastic events, and at the same time provide a healthy competitive experience for our students. San Ramon Valley High recognizes that striving to win is part of the American way of life, however, the element of competition and winning, although it exists, is controlled to the point that it does not determine the nature of our athletic program.
Funding of San Ramon Valley High School Athletics
High school athletics in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District are "self-funded". The athletic programs do not receive funding for equipment, uniforms, transportation, officials, or most coaching stipends. As such, participation contributions are solicited to fund these valuable programs. We encourage all interested students to try out for athletic teams. Participation in athletic programs is not dependent on financial contributions.
A participation contribution/donation is requested (please make checks payable to San Ramon Valley High School and print the athlete's sport on the memo line. This contribution covers major operating costs of our athletic budget which includes: officials, equipment, possible athletic trainers, supervision/security, facility , first aid supplies, CIF, NCS & League fees and various general expenses to operate our athletic department budget.. The suggessted contribution will be detailed in
a specific sport budget present to parents at an orientation evening after teams have been finalized.
