UHS is college preparatory school usually ranked as one of the top 20 high schools in the nation. All students attend college, most at schools considered among the strongest academic schools in the nation. Athletics are a large part of the school as well. Over 80% of our 400 students play on one or more teams in a typical year. Our athletic program has been recognized by the SF Chronicle as one of the top five in the Bay Area and by Cal Hi-Sports as the best D5 program in the State 6 times in the past 15 years.
Athletic Program Objectives:
We seek coaches with the values, skills, time and energy to lead our program in a way that provides a positive experience for each and every player, demands and inspires behavior of the highest order and enjoys the process of working hard to help the team be the best that it can be. Our coaches have a tremendous impact on the development of our kids and we seek coaches who understand this impact and value it highly.
In turn, our coaches tend to have long tenure with us and the primary reason they give for that is the relationship they have with University kids who tend to be hard working, achievement oriented and highly coachable. We work very hard to make coaching at University a thoroughly fulfilling experience for our coaches. This includes strong support from the athletic program staff, trainer, S&C coach and team parents.
