We are happy you have expressed a desire to have your child's participation in the athletic program at Mission San Jose High School. As a valued member of an athletic team, you will have a unique opportunity to make lasting friendships, to develop your athletic skills, to understand the value and importance of commitment and cooperation, and to compete against student-athletes from other schools in the MVAL (Mission Valley Athletic League), NCS (North Coast Section) and CIF (California Interscholastic Federation). Every effort will be made to ensure that this experience is educationally worthwhile and enjoyable.
Mission San Jose High School is proud of its athletic program and the many contributions our student-athletes have made to build a sense of community. We expect that all students will embrace the school’s tradition of outstanding sportsmanship, citizenship and fair play. Mission San Jose athletics endorses all the principles of the MVAL, NCS, and CIF.
We believe the opportunity to participate in our athletic program is a privilege, not a right. Therefore all student-athletes are expected to maintain a high standard of behavior as well as academic excellence. In order to remain as an athlete in good standing, an athlete must meet the requirements and fulfill the responsibilities outlined in this Student-Athlete Agreement. Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions of this agreement could result in a loss of the student’s athletic participation at Mission San Jose High School.
In addition, parent support for these standards of excellence is needed to ensure that proper values are in place for our athletes as guidelines for their participation.
Thomas N. Thomsen Athletic Director
