Welcome to Verona High School Athletics
The athletic program is an integral part of the total educational process at Verona High School. Young people learn valuable lessons such as sportsmanship, determination, perseverance, achievement, and teamwork through participation in interscholastic athletics. Athletics plays an important role in helping the individual student develop a positive self-concept as well as a healthy mind and body. Athletic competition fosters school spirit and develops pride in school and community for participants, students, and spectators.
Through athletics, we seek to provide a wholesome form of physical activity for as many students as possible. We will make every effort to offer our student-athletes the best in equipment, facilities, and coaching, in order to provide them with an enjoyable and rewarding athletic experience. While the reputation of our school and community is enhanced whenever its representatives excel, by far the greatest rewards and satisfactions are derived by those who actually participate on our athletic teams.
The coaching staff of Verona High School has dedicated itself to the development of the total student-athlete. Our staff is aware of the individual needs of youth as well as the social implications of being able to work as a member of a team. Our goals are to produce young men and women who have the capacity to be successful citizens in our highly competitive society. Both the physical and psychological growth of each person is conscientiously considered when planning and implementing our athletic program. We are aware of the tremendous obligations we have to the student-athletes in our care. Parents entrust their children to us and we shall always strive to earn their trust.
Our philosophy extends beyond athletics to our team community service projects and assisting those less fortunate than ourselves. The Verona High School Athletic Teams participate in a variety of community service projects that support a number of different organizations including:
Pediatric Cancer Research
Breast Cancer Research
St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital
Coaches vs Cancer
Verona High School has a tradition of competitive athletics evidenced by numerous championships from a vast majority of sports. The Verona Hillbillies are currently the defending North 1 Group 1 State Champions in Girls' Tennis, Football, and Boys' Basketball.
