    Research shows that in addition to improved physical health, sports can play a positive role in youth development including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral issues, and more confident social-emotional outcomes. The discipline of training, learning teamwork, following the leadership of coaches and captains, as well as learning to lose, can provide lifelong skills for young athletes.

    Studies have shown that children and youth participating in sports, compared to peers who do not participate, can exhibit:

    • higher grades, expectations, and desire to achieve;                                             
    • greater personal confidence and self-esteem;
    • greater connections with school;
    • stronger and better peer relationships;
    • better family attachment and interactions with parents;
    • more confidence in avoiding risky behavior;
    • increased involvement in volunteer work.

    SJUSD school athletic teams are staffed by experienced coaches who are carefully screened. They are bound by a Code of Ethics and Undue Influence policy, and participate in and are certified by the American Sports Education Program, a stringent coach education program which emphasizes Pursuing Victory with Honor, a mutual goal of the district and California Interscholastic Federation (CIF).

    CIF is a statewide organization through which member high schools mutually adopt rules and regulations relating to interscholastic athletes to promote educational balance, competitive equity and fair play for high school sports. Sac-Joaquin Section of the Northern Division of CIF, has information about athletic eligibility, bylaws, playoff information, etc.
