Philosophy

We believe that participation, play, and the joy of physical activity should be at the heart of our athletic program.

We will teach habits of body and mind that contribute to a healthy and happy life.

We will encourage our student-athletes to challenge themselves through honest competition and to learn lifelong lessons of responsibility, commitment, and initiative.

We will practice and teach teamwork and good sportsmanship.

We will respect our student-athletes and their commitments beyond athletics.

We expect all members of our community to respect the athletes and support the officials who join us in competition.

We recognize that our athletic program is an integral part of the Harvard-Westlake community and complements the academic mission which is central to the life of our school.
