MISSION

The Fresno Unified Athletic Department believes our students are the focus of our endeavors. The Fresno Unified Athletic Department believes that students enjoy the pursuit of personal excellence through athletic competition. The Fresno Unified Athletic Department believes athletics is an integral part of the education process. Through athletics, students learn important life lessons such as competitive spirit, striving to achieve to the best of their ability, teamwork, structure, setting and achieving goals, overcoming adversity, respect for others, sportsmanship, and character.
