Valley Creek Athletics and Coaching Philosophy

At Valley Creek, we have a strong tradition in Chargers Athletics. We have worked hard building a program to help develop our young student athletes and to develop a strong sense of “Charger” pride. Student athletes feel honored to represent Valley Creek and take pride in wearing our school colors.

Students in Grades 6 - 9 can compete in interschool athletics. Students in Grades 4 & 5 have several opportunities for athletic based clubs to develop their skills. School athletic team compositions vary from sport to sport. Team selection decisions will be made by coaches based on skill level, leadership, work ethic, behavior and teamwork. Coaches will also determine whether or not a Grade 6 student athlete is physically and emotionally capable of competing at a safe and confident level with the Grade 7, 8 and 9 student athletes.

Coaches reserve the right to remove any student athletes from their team at any time during the course of the season both permanently or temporarily if they are not able to:

  • attend and work hard in all practices and games
  • put forth their best effort in all core and option classes
  • be coachable
  • follow the code of conduct and expectations of Valley Creek School
