Dixon High School Athletics

Mission Statement

The Mission of the DUSD Athletic Department is to provide a broad based program of sports offerings that are safe and equitable with an environment that promotes high academic standards, leadership, and athletic excellence.

Philosophy of Athletics at Dixon Unified School District

At Dixon Unified School District, we consider athletics an integral part of the educational experience. Athletics provides opportunities that will help students develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. We view the competition of athletics as a healthy educational and physiological activity because it challenges each student to excel, to discover his or her physical limits, and to work cooperatively with team members. While winning is a natural goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship and enjoyment of competition take precedence at all times and enhance the educational value of contests.

Dixon Unified School District Athletic Department Goals

Through the unique nature each sporty dictates its specific objectives, all teams will attempt to:

  • Emphasize the development of basic skills, appropriate attitudes, values and team concepts
  • Allow as many students as possible to participate and share the experience and benefits derived from team membership
  • Promote Health and Well-being. Mental and physical health are improved by and through activities
  • Compete with non-league opponents as well as members of the GEL and YCAL
