  • WELCOME TO THE DOG POUND!

    We are proud to be able to offer athletic opportunities to our senior high students in fifteen different sports and our junior high students have opportunities to participate in nine different sports. The tabs at the top of the page will provide you with links to all the information that you may need for anything involving our athletic teams.

    Mission Statement:
    The West York Area School District Athletic Department will challenge student-athletes to achieve their full potential by fueling the academic, social and physical growth of its students through sportsmanship, teamwork, and athletic competition.

    Vision:
    The West York Area Athletic Department’s vision is aligned with the District’s vision of Every Student, Every Day. Our goal is to provide every student an opportunity to participate and be successful through interscholastic athletics.

    Philosophy:
    We would like to offer as many opportunities as possible for our students to participate in and support our athletic programs. We encourage all of our students to be active and respectful participants by supporting all our teams at events and competitions. Participation in West York Athletics, however, is a privilege and not a right. Students will be expected to adhere to the rules and policies set forth by the West York Area School District and the PIAA.

    Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the total educational program of the West York Area School District. The goal and purpose of the athletic program is to teach student-athletes the meaning of sportsmanship, commitment, fairness, sacrifice, teamwork, and hard work. While winning is a natural goal, it is our goal that, through our athletic programs, student-athletes will adopt these guidelines and develop a positive winning attitude that will translate into all aspects of their lives.

    Core Values:
    At West York, our priority is to instill in our students the qualities and values that will help them succeed in their life endeavors. Our students will be dedicated and will persevere for excellence and to continuously improve year after year. They will take ownership and pride in themselves, their team, and their school. At West York we value grace and dignity by showing respect and good sportsmanship while competing. Above all else, we will focus on scholarship and be dedicated to our academics and education first and foremost. Here at West York, we are committed to being better BULLDOGS!
