    Athletic Department Mission

    It is the John F. Kennedy Athletic Department’s mission to be determined to instill strong academic values in all of our student athletes while providing a safe and challenging athletic experience.  We understand the diversity in schools, and will ensure that student-athletes develop not only internally as a better citizen, but also externally by developing the required athletic skills for team and personal success.​ 
    John F. Kennedy High School athletics compete within the Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) which is a part of the North Coast Section(NCS). All students participating in school sports must meet GPA requirements (see eligibility). Our school has been achieving amazing accomplishments in the past couple of years.  In 2016- 2017 school year, 7 of our varsity sports teams made playoffs and 20 of our sports teams made NCS Scholar team honors.  We constantly strive for academic success as we recognize strong academic values will increase the success of our teams.  We look forward to increasing our successes on and off the field in the coming year.  If you ever have questions or concerns, please direct those to the athletic director, Paul McDermott.
