Message from our Athletic Director
It is an honor and a privilege to be the Athletic Director at Monte Vista High School. Mustang teams have a long standing tradition of athletic excellence with outstanding coaches and student-athletes. The primary goal of the athletic program is to achieve success in all academic and competitive endeavors. A positive athletic program can contribute significantly to school morale and community pride. While winning is important, teamwork and sportsmanship are always emphasized.
We expect that all students in our program will develop physically, mentally and socially. Our coaches strive daily to have a positive impact on each student-athlete’s life, helping him or her achieve their maximum potential. Student-athlete success is facilitated by being prepared, maintaining a positive attitude and being dedicated to a common cause.
I am excited about the future of Monte Vista athletics, and I am looking forward to working with our students, coaches, faculty, staff and parents.

Funding the Athletics
High School athletics in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District are "self-funded". The athletic programs do not receive funding for equipment, uniforms, transportation, officials, or most coaching stipends. As such, participation contributions are solicited to fund these valuable programs. We encourage all interested students to try out for athletic teams. Participation in athletic programs is not dependent on financial contributions.
The mission of the Monte Vista Athletic Booster Club is to promote and provide programs and projects which will enable the booster club to contribute additional funding to ensure the continuance of necessary and viable athletic programs; enlist strong community and parent support for athletics; provide our student athletes with proper and necessary equipment and facilities; and act as a liaison between the school administration, coaches, parents and athletes of Monte Vista High School.
