Welcome to the TUHSD athletic web page for 2017-18. We are proud of the athletic program at the District's three schools: Tamalpais, Sir Francis Drake and Redwood High Schools.
The TUHSD 2017-18 athletic program consists of up to 44 teams at each of our comprehensive schools for a total of 2,811 athletes (duplicated) participating on 126 teams. This represents 29 additional athletes participating on district teams than last year and 629 (28.8%) more than in 2005-06 when we began keeping records. Sometimes, one site offers a level of a particular sport that the others do not depending interest in that sport. Sports participation does not grow in parallel with enrollment growth. Instead, participation may be restricted by the limits on some team sizes and more cuts are inevitable as the schools grow. SEE sports offered each season.
Tamalpais Union High School District teams are members of the Marin County Athletic League (MCAL) in the North Coast Section (NCS) of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). The CIF governs all high school athletics in California.
Athletic administration and coaches uphold the purpose of our Athletic Code of Conduct (AR6145.21) which is to promote the idea of healthy competition and to set standards of good sportsmanship for everyone involved. The District and all of our schools, along with all other MCAL schools, subscribe to the tenets of Pursuing Victory with Honor.
Athletics play an important part in the Tamalpais Union High School District. Young people learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program. Athletics play an important part, too, in helping the individual student develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students - spectators as well as participants - develop pride in their school.
