Verona Area High School currently offers 22 athletics programs to our students. Each program consists of a varsity team, junior varsity team and in some cases include multiple freshman teams. Our coaching staff consists of 75 coaches passionate about sports and students.
Athletes must complete a physical examination, a concussion release, and an emergency contact form to participate in these activities. An athletic fee is also required, which varies depending on the number of sports a student participates in and how many family members are involved.
Verona Area High School welcomes you to our athletic website. We remind you that interscholastic events are an extension of the classroom, and lessons are best learned when respect is shown to all.
Please, show good sportsmanship during games and show respect for coaches, players, officials, and fans.
Cheer for your team and not against the opposing team. Avoid profanity, racist; sexist; or ethnic comments; or other intimidating or taunting actions. Let the coaches coach, the officials officiate and the players play.
Enjoy Verona Area High School sports!
