Del Lago Academy’s athletic department is committed to providing every scholar an opportunity to participate and develop their skills in a supportive environment. Del Lago has five team sports which compete at both the men’s and women’s varsity level. These sports are Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, and Lacrosse. We believe that these teams are essential in building character, a sense of community, and school spirit.
Participation in the athletic program program is a privilege that is extended to all Del Lago Academy scholars who are eligible under the regulations set forth by the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), the Escondido Union High School District, and Del Lago Academy. As representatives of Del Lago Academy, scholar athletes are expected to adhere to the five pillars of our school – Welcome, Choice Words, Do No Harm, Never Too Late to Learn, and Be the Best.
We strongly believe that athletics helps scholars develop character and leadership skills that will assist in their academic and career readiness. Through their participation in athletics, scholars will learn teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility, confidence, and other life-long skills.
At Del Lago Academy academics are highly valued. Scholar athletes are required to maintain passing grades in all of their classes. In order to support our athletes in their pursuit of academic excellence, after-school tutorials are offered before practice as well as on some Saturdays.
