Athletic Program Philosophy and Overview


Football 800x640The overriding philosophy of the Golden Hills School  athletic program is to offer students an exploratory sports program involving as many students as possible. All participants are encouraged to do their best within the spirit and rules of the games and practices.  Good sportsmanship, playing for fun, teamwork, and respect for oneself and others will be emphasized throughout each sport.

"Play with heart. Win with class. Lose with dignity."

  • Basketball

GHS is competitive in the El Dorado Sports League, a local organization of similar-sized private and public schools. GHS allows any student who wishes to participate in an athlectics program to join a team. In fact, as a smaller school, participation is especially encouraged and some amount of playing time is likely.

Sports Registration and Athletic Program Medical Information

Each school year, students interested in participating in GHS sports must have their physician complete a GHS Athletic Program Participation & Medical Treatment Information form.  This form is part of the GHS Athletics Registration & Physical form and only needs to be completed once each academic year.  The Athletics Registration & Physical Forms can be found in the Parents section on the Information Bar above under Forms.

A student must also complete the GHS Athletics Registration form for each sport in which s/he will participate.
