Athletics

Athletes are ambassadors of Portola High School, and therefore the behavior of all athletes, in and out of competition, is of paramount importance. As a privilege and not a right, interscholastic athletics is a voluntary program and students are not obligated to participate. Participation is not required for graduation. It is the responsibility of the athlete to conform to the behavioral expectations set forth by the school’s athletic department.

2018 Summer Skills Camps

Portola High School is excited to announce its Summer Skills Camp program. This is the perfect opportunity for incoming freshmen to build their athletic skills, try a new sport, and get to know our coaching staff. These camps are designed to teach and build skills in each sport, develop proper conditioning, and focus on the fundamentals of high school athleticism. Purely recreational and completely voluntary, the PHS Athletic Summer Skills Camps are open to all Portola High School students. Daily attendance aids in the development of these skills but is not required. Participation in camps is not offered for credit, nor is it a prerequisite for equal access to participation in athletics during the school year. 

If you are paying for Camp after 6/8/2018, all payments are taken in cash only.

All summer camp registration and payment must occur by 6/8/2018 at 3:30 in the athletic office. If for some reason you must pay for camp after this date the athletic office will only take CASH ONLY. NO CHECKS, CREDIT CARD, OR ONLINE PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. This is due to the change in fiscal school years and ASB office closure.
