Athletics at West Linn High School
The Athletic Program at West Linn High School is an integral part of the educational process. Athletics offer a positive and meaningful experience that will enhance the growth and development of all young men and women who participate.
In accordance with our mission, students know that academics come first, and our student-athletes are expected to be just as productive in the classroom as they are on the field. Student participation in an athletic team is a privilege and not a right. High standards of conduct will be expected of students on and off the playing fields and courts. As a West Linn High School athlete, students will make a commitment to themselves, teammates, and to the school to follow the guidelines and expectations of being a student-athlete.
As a member of a district that strives to fully develop each student’s potential, West Linn High School values the multiple-sport athlete and encourages all students to participate in as many different interscholastic programs as possible. The Lion staff is committed to working together, with a common philosophy of sharing student-athletes, including those involved in the arts and activities.
Athletics offer students the opportunity to build confidence and discipline, and our coaching staff works hard to ensure that all students put forth their best effort every day. Lion athletes learn important lessons in the areas of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, and balance. West Linn High School athletic program provides quality coaching and instruction throughout all levels of play and realizes the importance of fair play and honest, respectful competition.
