The mission of the Head-Royce School Athletics Department is to enrich the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of all student-athletes by providing equal opportunities for competition in which the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, teamwork, integrity, commitment, and self-discipline are emphasized throughout the sports season.
On October 2, the North Coast Section approved a modified athletics calendar for schools in the Bay Area Conference, which includes Head-Royce. While most sports are offered in the same sequential order as in the past, a few are not.
With the stated goals this year of participation, community building, fitness, skill development, and competition, the HRS Athletic department is working to create an athletic experience that most similarly resembles what a standard year looks like.
Start and end dates for each season are somewhat flexible as of now. December 7 is the earliest date that the North Coast Section will allow teams to be formed.

These seasons are shorter in length than a standard year. Postseason opportunities may be adjusted from a standard year, as well. But this calendar will allow us to continue to offer the programs which we’ve offered in the past.
Our Athletic department is hopeful that families will continue to opt in and participate in athletics this year. Of course, we understand that some families may have reservations.
To aid in our planning for the year, we ask that all students and families complete this US Athletics Interest Survey, so that we can get a snapshot of the interest in each of our programs.
