Woodside strongly believes that high school sports are an essential component of our extra-curricular activities which promote and reinforce the values of a strong work ethic, teamwork, delayed gratification and physical fitness.

Brain Book Link TrainingTop of Page

Woodside High School and the Sequoia Union High School District have partnered with Dignity Health to promote education about the seriousness of head injuries.  A major component of this partnership is an online training called 'Brainbook' that will provide new information about prevention and diagnosis while dispelling some common myths about brain trauma.  
 
To ensure all our athletes have access to this essential information and as part of the grant our District receives from Dignity Health, all Spring athletes will complete this online training.  The Athletic Department will receive confirmation from Brainbook once you have completed the course (the entire process should take approximately 30-45 minutes), here is the link to begin the registration and coursework:
