Mission Statement of Athletics

Granite Hills High School offers 20 sports with multiple levels. The objective of the athletic

programs are to nurture the whole person; that is, the mental, emotional and physical well-being

of all student/athletes. Our purpose is to enhance self-esteem and self-respect and to guide our

young people toward becoming mature adults who see beyond individual needs to the needs of

the larger community.

Athletic Clearance Information

All students interested in sports for the 2017 -2018 can pick up a sports packet in the Athletics Office C405 at GHHS.

Each student must have a Cougar Pass from the Athletics office verifying
