Student athletes are the heart of our school. They perform well both on the field and in the classroom, demonstrating commitment and strength – these, plus many other qualities make Reno High students who they are.

During the off-season of their sport, these students are faced with the opportunity to play club sports. Club sports are extracurricular teams that are not associated with the school and usually have a hefty price tag to go along with

them. Although they may be more expensive than school sports, these teams are great for student athletes to stay in shape during the off-season and create a bond with kids from other schools.

Club teams also give students the opportunity to travel out of state and compete against highly competitive teams ranked at both state and national levels. Kids who compete at this level are able to develop their skills and learn more about the game than those who do not choose to play a club sport. Staying with the team in a hotel and attending team lunches and dinners brings everyone together and allows each player to feel included and like they’re an important part of the team.

Students learn from the sport itself, the people they play with, and their coaches – these are the people who want to see success in the individual. It’s important that students become friends with other kids outside of their school, and a team’s bond must remain unbroken to be successful. Club sports teach individuals important lessons and allow them to create new friendships, which is why athletes should continue to play their sport, even after the high school season ends.
