South Pasadena High School

Welcome

Athletic Director's Message:
 
Welcome to South Pasadena High School Athletics!  
 
I am excited to be your new Athletic Director for 2019-2020.  I have been teaching at South Pasadena High School since 2013 and grew up just down the street in Temple City, where I went K-12.  I am no stranger to the league, where I competed in Football and Track & Field, and then I coached these two sports while teaching at SPHS.  I believe in the well-rounded experience that a comprehensive high-school like South Pasadena can provide - encouraging students to be actively involved in and out of the classroom.  I also serve as the Junior Class Advisor, helping the Junior Class fund-raise and organize major events like the Homecoming Dance, PowerPuff Juniors vs. Senior Football, and Prom. It is my goal that every student participates in someway to round their experience here at South Pasadena. 
 
Feel free to contact me at achan@spusd.net for any questions regarding our athletic programs.
 
 
 
South Pasadena Athletics offers varsity team participation in 14 CIF sanctioned sports as well as sideline cheerleading. During the 2018-19 school year over 390 different students participated in 42 different teams as part of South Pasadena's athletic program.  Overall, SPHS varsity teams amassed 5 Rio Hondo League team titles and 2 CIF-SS Divisional Championships.
 
SPHS Athletics is dedicated to developing student-athletes to compete in interscholastic competition, demonstrating the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and responsible behavior.  We believe that athletics play an integral role in the mental and physical development of young adults.  To help with this endeavor, SPHS Athletics will continue its partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance to provide workshops for our student athletes, coaches, and parents.  The main goal of the partnership is to help SPHS continue to develop a healthy mix of competitive athletics while maintaining high standards of sportsmanship.  We recognize that every athletic event involves students, coaches, and parents.  With this in mind, workshops have been scheduled to provide common expectations for these three groups. 
 

We are committed to providing our students the best possible athletic environment, from experienced and dedicated coaches and trainers to excellent athletic facilities and equipment. We invite parents and students to experience first-hand our dedication to high school athletics by attending one of the many competitions that we host on campus. See the Athletics Calendar for a list of upcoming games and matches.

 

GO TIGERS!!!
