Dear Athlete Parents/Guardians,

My name is Suzanne Vick and I am completing my fourth year as Athletic Director serving the University Place School District. We have had an outstanding year in our athletic programs. Students involved in extracurricular activities are more engaged in school, have higher grades and learn skills like discipline, teamwork and resilience. It is my hope you will encourage your child to be a part of at least one of our 26 sport offerings at Curtis High School in the 2022-2023 school year.

With that being said, I am writing to give you information about our summer programs and dates for the fall season. I have also added our head coach’s contact information as well. If you have questions about a specific program, please reach out to them directly.

The success of our programs comes through intentionality, hard work and great support from our families. Many of our programs provide summer workouts, training sessions, games, camps and leagues. Please reach out to each coach directly for specific details. Football, Boys and Girls Basketball and possibly others will be starting next week.

To be able to participate in our summer programs all athletes need to be cleared. If your athlete was part of a high school sports team this past year, you only need to make sure your information is up to date and that a current physical is on file. If your child did not participate in a sport this school year, you will need to register prior to participating.


All athletes will need to re-register in August for the 2022-23 school year.

Athletes must have a current physical uploaded to Intouch or on file in the athletic office.


FALL SPORTS START DATES

AUGUST 17, 2022 - FOOTBALL

AUGUST 22, 2022 - ALL OTHER FALL SPORTS


TRANSFER STUDENTS - If you have transferred to Curtis in the last 365 days, please email me at svick@upsd83.org so we can start the eligibility process.


VACATION PLANNING – Our goal is to compete at the highest level in every sport. Because the above programs start before school begins and many make cuts, it is important not to plan vacation after these dates. Also, for your information, most teams practice on Saturdays and Labor Day.


Come out and support your Vikings competing at state this weekend.

Girls Water Polo - Curtis Aquatics Center

Boys/Girls Track - Mount Tahoma High School

We are looking forward to a GREAT Summer and Fall. Be sure to follow Curtis HS Athletics @OURVIKINGNATION on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Sincerely,

Suzanne Vick


VISION - The University Place School District Athletic Department will be recognized for excellence in the classroom, in the community and in competition.

Suzanne Vick

My name is Suzanne Vick and I am starting my 5th year as Athletic Director at Curtis High School. I am thrilled to serve you! I look forward to connecting with each of you! The lessons learned through athletics are essential to every young person's success. Through athletics we learn to win, lose, trust, disappoint, persevere, dig deeper, defer, celebrate, listen, sacrifice, and commit, along with many more.


Our coaches love what they do and work extremely hard preparing to serve our student-athletes. We are committed to competing with integrity, offering the best instruction, over-communicating, and providing a positive experience.


As a staff we have spent the past four years developing our guiding principles. Our Vision, Mission, Values and The Curtis Way will be what guides all our decisions this year. Please take a time to talk with your child about what it means to be a Curtis Athlete.


We need you! My hope is every family and fan will partner with us to positively encourage and support all of our Curtis High School sports, athletes and coaches. As you walk into a Curtis event please choose to be a fan. The role of athlete, coach and official are already taken.


I look forward to partnering with you, our athletes and our coaches to make this the best year ever!

GO VIKS!
