About Athletics

We don't just teach the skills to the win the game, we teach the skills to win at life. 

The Lancer Athletics program has a storied history with more than a few championship banners. Yet, we believe athletics consists of more than just wins and losses - some of the most important triumphs are outside of competition. We encourage our student-athletes to thrive not only on the court, but in the classroom. Lancer Nation offers 26 varsity sports. We are a member of the North Puget Sound League at the 4A level, so whether you join the team or cheer from the stands, being part of the action is easy.
