Waukesha West Fans & Student-Athletes:
Thank you for taking part in another exciting year of Wolverine Athletics! At Waukesha West High School, we are proud to offer 28 WIAA and club sport programs. Our fundamental belief is that every student deserves and benefits from a well-rounded educational experience, including academic rigor, extra-curricular involvement, and the development of relationships with peers and adults that will positively impact future success.
We encourage our student-athletes, families, and fans to join the Waukesha West tradition of competitive spirit and exceptional sportsmanship. The intensity and passion that our community offers on a consistent basis truly helps to propel our programs toward success on the field, court, mat, or in the pool. Thank you in advance for representing West High School with class, integrity, and pride.
Beyond cheering loudly for our student-athletes, I highly recommend getting involved with the Waukesha West Booster Club. Over the past four years, our booster club has been able to give West athletic programs over $200,000! This is only possible through special events, concession sales, and memberships purchased. Please consider a role within the Booster Club that capitalizes on your strengths.
Likewise, I encourage you to visit www.westathletes.org to learn more about the Waukesha West Athletic Endowment Fund. After only one year in operation, the fund has grown to more than $25,000! Your investment in the future of West Athletics would be greatly appreciated.
If there is any way that I can personally assist you, please do not hesitate to contact me with the information noted below. I wish each of you a fantastic 2016-2017 school year.

The word “transformation” is defined as a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. Within the context of our value system at West High School, evidence of transformation would occur as students make the positive choice because they choose to, not simply because they are told to. More than basic obedience, a shift of the heart and mind occurs such that others-centered thinking, integrity, and togetherness become pillars in their lives personally and collectively.
As students progress through their high school experience, they grow through academic knowledge, social interactions, and extra-curricular involvement. All of which will leave their mark and influence the type of adults our students become. While we understand that high school students are not adults just yet, we do strive to provide adult-like opportunities and responsibilities for our students in a manner that will equip them with the tools and skills necessary for post-high school success.
Ultimately, we have the privilege of creating this environment of high expectations through our mutual passions for athletics. Although life lessons can be taught through a variety of circumstances, we believe students engage at a unique level through their athletic programs, and we therefore have a captive audience ready for learning along the way.
We continue to monitor indicators of our success as leaders and coaches with student-athletes on a daily basis, but the true measure of our success as an Athletic Department and school will be demonstrated by the positive family members, spouses, friends, employees, and citizens that our students become.
Thank you for your support as we aim to achieve this mission with every West student-athlete.
