A Message from Our Director of Athletics

Once again, it is time to watch the sun set on another summer. It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our Valley Viking athletic year. We are looking forward to many exciting sporting events scheduled for this fall and throughout the year. Our coaches and players have been working very persistently throughout summer and during the off-season in preparation for the upcoming season. We thank them for their efforts and dedication as they continue to perform to the best of their ability. Also, we would like to thank them in advance for representing Valley in a very positive and sportsmanlike manner on the field or court. We would also like our cheering fans to repeat their outstanding sportsmanlike behavior from the years past.

Our Valley Athletic Booster organization continues to be important to the funding of our programs each year. The Valley Booster organization makes available non-budgeted items for our athletic teams. Please be supportive during sales and fundraisers by the Booster Club. The Booster Club is starting to grow and would like to have you on its team.

We greatly appreciate your attendance at our Valley Viking home games. We have remarkable student-athletes here at Valley in all of our sports, all striving to become greater on and off the field. We invite everyone to join us in cheering on our student-athletes throughout the year and join us at one of our athletic events. While you're at it, bring a friend… or two. We'll see you in the stands.

Go Vikings!
