WHS Athletic Families, 

We are excited to announce that our ‘Summer Athletic Conditioning Program’ has been approved by Superintendent Streshly and Principal Burbank. This program has been developed to allow our student athletes to condition and develop their athletic skills, while following social distancing and hygiene guidelines. Our start date will be Tuesday, June 16th. Conditioning will take place in pods of 12 students or less with one coach supervising. Because of the strict guidelines that we must follow, each pod will be assigned a specific time and location on campus with a time limit of 45 minutes per conditioning session. Locations for use include Bradley Field, the baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, and the pool. Conditioning must remain outdoors and without any equipment.   Participating athletes must be enrolled for next year at WHS.  Interested?  Contact your current coach or Athletic Director Tim Faulkner,

We are requiring student athletes to register on SportsNet before they can participate in their assigned summer conditioning pod.  Click here: if you need to register. Once students have been signed up, and we will assign you to your pod you will receive communication on your specific training time, the days of the week, and campus location from either your coach or the athletic director Mr. Faulkner.  Athletes may not switch assigned pods.  We can make this work if participating athletes adhere to the guidelines.  Please review our ‘Summer Athletic Conditioning Guidelines’ using this link: 
These guidelines were  provided by the district and compiled by district athletic directors in accordance with the San Mateo County Health Department.

More good news and new this year!  The Woodside Athletic Boosters Organization will be sending updates about athletics and booster activities at Woodside including status updates for 2020-2021.  Please be sure to follow/like these pages to get this info!!
