Welcome to the Coyote Family Welcome to Coyote athletics where young men and women compete in twenty sports with forty seven teams competing at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman level.
Coyote athletes began establishing a history of CLASS and success when the school opened in 1953 and they continue to work to establish themselves as one of finest athletic programs in North Orange County. The greatness of athletic teams is in part because of the athletes participating. We know that students participating in sports at the high school level usually get better grades that non-athletic students, have better school attendance, have a higher graduation rate, and have higher self esteem. They also learn how to set goals and respect for others, in addition to learning how to win with class and lose with dignity.
Participation in athletics at BPHS means more than competition between individuals or teams representing different high schools. It teaches fair play and sportsmanship, understanding and appreciation of teamwork. It teaches that to quit means failure, while to work hard means success. The legacy of an athletic program will be measured by more than just the wins and losses that our teams experience. Participation on an athletic team is a PRIVILEGE that is extended to every student who is eligible under regulations set up by the State of California Interscholastic Federation (ClF), FJUHSD and Buena Park High School. With every privilege goes responsibility.
The conduct of a Coyote athlete is closely observed by many people. An athlete is a representative of a team, the school and the community. Therefore, it is important that a Coyote athlete be at all times and in all places a gentleman or lady. Buena Park High School offers students an opportunity to participate in voluntary interscholastic competition in order that they may experience and acquire the lessons and rewards of team-oriented sports: namely cooperation, sacrifice, striving to achieve group goals and commitment to the team. We also believe a successful athletic program nurtures and fosters good citizens and tomorrow's leaders. On behalf of the athletic department, I welcome you to the challenge of Coyote Athletics, and I hope your experience is a positive one.
