Valiant Athletics Information
Valley Catholic offers many sports programs for students of all athletic abilities. It is our mission to help students develop character and maximize athletic potential through the discipline of athletic competition.
Below is some information to help you as you begin your journey here at Valley Catholic. Valley Catholic High School competes at the 3A classification in the OSAA and are also members of the Lewis & Clark League. Some of our sports are in special districts. We offer OSAA varsity teams in 19 sports and also JV and JV2 in many of these sports.
No-Cut Policy: Valley Catholic has a no-cut policy in athletics meaning all students can participate on an athletic team. Playing tine and participation on the varsity teams for all of our sports is earned and determined by the head coach. Due to the number of participants, the boys’ basketball program offers three high school teams and one CYO team.

There is a moratorium week at the end of July each summer in which NO workouts are scheduled or allowed and facilities are closed to all athletes. It provides a built-in break for athletes and a good opportunity for families to plan vacations this week. The dates of the moratorium week are posted one year in advance on the OSAA website. The Moratorium Week is posted on the OSAA website calendar. Students planning to play a fall sport are expected to be at practices which generally start two weeks before the first classes.
