How to clear your student athlete

The Department of Athletics at Dougherty Valley High School is committed to enriching campus life through a program of interscholastic athletics. We promote the development of qualities in the student-athlete that will serve the participating individual and our community.  At Dougherty Valley high School we believe athletics is an integral part of the educational process. The many lessons that athletics can learn include: sportsmanship, self-discipline, teamwork, commitment, and developing self-confidence, as well as dealing with success and overcoming adversity. These are lessons that will last a lifetime. The true value of High School athletics rests in the learning of these lessons and working to develop future leaders.
