Athletics & Activities Calendar
Athletics & Activities 2017-18
Posted on 10/02/2017

In the Puyallup School District student athletes continue to excel in the classroom as well as in their sport.

With an enrollment of nearly 23,000 students, almost one out of every four students participate in athletics in the Puyallup School District.

In the 2016-17 school year, 5,100 students from grades seven through 12 dedicated their time to one sports season or more in addition to their studies.

Last school year Puyallup schools had 62 teams who earned a combined team grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher, and 30 of those teams had a combined team GPA of 3.5 or higher.

According to board policy 2151R student athletes must maintain a 2.0 minimum GPA in the current grading period to remain eligible for competition.

Athletics is an important part of the scholastic experience for many students, but they must be able to balance their academics with their sport.

”Students who participate in athletics are typically developing strong character traits such as teamwork and discipline; but student athletes may also cultivate traits in leadership, dedication, and overcoming adversities.” – Rick Wells

Rick Wells, director of instructional leadership – athletics, health, and fitness, said, ”Students who participate in athletics are typically developing strong character traits such as teamwork and discipline; but student athletes may also cultivate traits in leadership, dedication, and overcoming adversities.”

Athletics have carried a long tradition in the Puyallup School District since before the 1900s.

The first football team was established at Puyallup High School in 1894, making athletics a tradition in the Puyallup community for over 120 years.

Supporting student athletes is more than just filling a seat at a game or a match. It is supporting students who are dedicating themselves to their team and their school as well as their studies.

Whether you are a student, parent, or community member we invite you to attend some of the various games and matches throughout the school year in support of Puyallup students.
