Athletic Director’s Welcome Letter

Flying WW with words 2

Welcome to Wauwatosa West High School Athletics and Activities Department

It is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to explore all of the possibilities that exist within the Wauwatosa West Athletic and Activities Department.  It is our top priority to create opportunities for students to get involved and participate in activities of their choice.  Wauwatosa West High School provides a great learning environment for each and every student that attends. The academic demands are high to provide a greater opportunity for the students after high school to be successful in any endeavor they pursue.  We want to provide a balance of academic challenges and athletic/activity success.

Involvement in athletics and activities provides many positive attributes in a young individual; develop self-esteem, leadership skills, social interactions and education about healthy lifestyle choices. A positive and strong work ethic can also emerge by being part of a team. Athletics can develop a greater sense of purpose to ones’ self by teaching teamwork, forgiveness, humility and excellence. High school athletics provides the chance for an individual to develop physically, mentally and socially.

Wauwatosa West is a proud member of the WIAA and member of the Greater Metro Conference where we compete against other Milwaukee area schools in both boys and girls sports. We also co-op with Wauwatosa East HS in four sports: wrestling, boys swim/dive, boys and girls golf.  We also co-op with Wauwatosa East High in the club sports of Lacrosse and Trap Shooting.

Student-athletes, coaches and parents are all expected to demonstrate good sportsmanship, community involvement and a strong code of conduct. As the public holds student-athletes to a higher scrutiny, we must work to demonstrate good judgment and a positive perspective of high school athletics. Success and pride will come from competing the right way.

Wauwatosa West High School is a very special place.  Whether you are an alumnus looking for ways to reconnect with your alma mater or a current or incoming student, I encourage you to get involved with Wauwatosa West Athletics as a spectator or participant and be a part of our past and future success.

Go Trojans!!
