The Athletic Department at Coral Gables High has a long history of achievement and excellence. From a football program that has been crowned national champion four times, to the numerous state and local championships that have been won in track, baseball, soccer, tennis, golf, badminton, and swimming, Gables continues to field teams that are a source of pride to both our school and community. A constant emphasis on academics results in our student athletes earning some of the highest grade point averages in the country. Our school boasts four former Olympians, three Super Bowl champions, and a number of current professional baseball, football, golf, and tennis players.

A student, who participates in interscholastic competition here at Coral Gables Senior High, will demonstrate high standards of ethics, sportsmanship and promote the development of good character and other life skills. A model student participant will exhibit a high degree of decorum demonstrating respect for self, family, and all people regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, gender, or physical condition. As representatives of Miami-Dade County Public Schools and more specifically Coral Gables Senior High, student participants make a commitment to adhere to the above presented core values and team rules.


           
THE ROLE OF A PARENT IN SPORTS

As a parent of a student who participates in athletics, you make a huge difference in the quality of your child’s sport experience, as well as what is being taught and learned by our youth. The National Federation of State High School Associations has provided information and resources to help educate you on the importance of proper behavior by parents in school sports.
