Student Life

Verdugo Hills HS sports teams are coached by trained and certified coaches and follow the guidelines and policies of the California Interscholastic Federation, Los Angeles City Section including the tenets of Pursuing Victory with Honor. Please contact coaches listed below with specific questions about teams including try-outs, practices, and games. In some cases, there are openings for coaches which will be filled prior to the season of that sport. There are requirements for eligibility and physical exams.  The athletics packet is digital and can be accessed through after June 1, 2020.  We are proud to offer nearly every sport sanctioned by CIF-LA at Verdugo Hills. Many of our teams are league and city champions and we consistently win scholar-athlete awards, Team GPA and other CIF honors.
