Greetings Mariner Students, Families and Friends,
Mar Vista High School is a member of the Sweetwater Union High School District and the Metropolitan Athletic Conference. We are proud to offer 28 different CIF sports with more than 50 total teams across the three different CIF seasons (Fall, Winter and Spring). Most of the teams offer multiple levels (Varsity and Junior Varsity) with Softball, Girls Soccer, Boys/Girls Basketball, Girls Volleyball and Football offering a Novice level as well.
Our athletic programs are built around teaching student-athletes life-long lessons that they can carry with them once they graduate. Teamwork, perseverance, physical fitness and sportsmanship are at the core of our beliefs and our coaching staff does a great job stressing these principles.
At Mar Vista High School, academics and athletics go hand-in-hand. A 2.0 unweighted GPA in both Scholarship and Citizenship are required for athletic competition along with passing a minimum of four classes. Each student must have insurance, have a physical and be cleared through the ASB to participate in athletics.
Also, please note that physicals must now be valid through the entire season of clearance (your physical can no longer expire during the season) and cannot be performed by a chiropractor. If you are having issues getting a timely appointment with your doctor, I would suggest South Bay Urgent Care (1628 Palm Ave, San Diego 92154) where no appointment is needed the cost is only $20.
You can find more information about the clearance process and our teams on the Athletic Links on this page, but if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
Thanks for all your support of Mariner Athletics.
Mar Vista High School
