As a member of the Northern Section of the California Interscholastic Federation, Chico High believes that a broad program of interscholastic athletics contributes to the development of our students. Among these values are:
Development of scholarship, health, strength, agility, coordination skills, recreational interests, physical fitness and habits of clean living
Instill the concepts of sportsmanship, fair play, honesty and respect for rules and authority
Development of qualities of cooperation, teamwork, competition, leadership, initiative, responsibility, subordination of self to the welfare of the team and school, self-respect, courtesy for others, perseverance and courage
Such outcomes are valuable to both the student and to our society.
It must be emphasized that these values can be assured only when competition is controlled under rules, policies and leadership, which place the realization of such values and that of scholastic attainment above all other considerations.
The Chico High Panthers compete in the Eastern Athletic League/Sacramento River League of the Northern Section, California Interscholastic Federation.

Without the support, dedication and efforts of our Chico High Sports Boosters, athletics at Chico High would be much different. Over the last few years their efforts to help maintain and improve our programs has been, to say the least, very, very successful. The membership of the Sports Boosters is an ever changing group of wonderful people who are very dedicated to helping our children. New members are always welcome and needed.
There are three very important roles that you can be part of, one or all three:
Join the sports boosters and just be a member
Become a member of the board or be an associate board member
Become a parent rep for your student's team for the 2020 - 2021 school year
Please follow the link below and become part of the continuing efforts to keep the tradition of Chico High Athletics moving forward.
