Athletics at University

Athletics are an integral part of the total educational program at University High School, and each year more than 70 percent of students participate in at least one sport at UHS.

Our no-cut athletics program strives to provide student-athletes with competitive experiences that are fun and challenging, that promote individual growth within a safe and healthy environment, and that instill a life-long love of physical activity.

Why Inclusive Sports?

Some skills can’t be taught in a classroom. On UHS sports teams, athletes learn much more than the routes, rules, and cheers they need to utilize at game time. Teamwork, integrity, service, tenacity, work ethic, confidence, and sportsmanship are lessons all our sports teams emphasize, and they are lessons all athletes, from the first-time player to the skilled and seasoned competitor, can benefit from. That’s why we believe in offering an inclusive (no-cut) athletics program for students. Though many teams have tryouts to place athletes on varsity, junior varsity, and C-level teams, all students who wish to participate and can commit to the team are guaranteed a spot.
