The West community takes tremendous pride in our sportsmanship and we want everyone to positively contribute to our JAGUAR PRIDE! Winter sports present a much bigger challenge for all of us to remember how to appropriately handle ourselves as JAGUAR fans! Indoor events put fans much closer to the game, which make it louder and easier to be heard and noticed. Everyone has a specific role at a sporting event - coach, parent, athlete, official, etc. It is when we try parent and coach or coach and officiate or parent and officiate, that we can cross the line of good sportsmanship. Please remind yourself to be positive, supportive and most importantly, enjoy the game!

Winter Break Practices /Construction Areas
Please make sure you know what the practice schedule is for your teams over winter break! There will be no practices from Dec. 24-28, due to KSHSAA guidelines. There will be several hallways having new flooring put down over the break. The lower level doors will not be accessible, so athletes need to come into the building through the upper Commons doors. The work will begin on Dec. 20th and be completed by January 2nd.
