Welcome to Parkland School District Athletics – The Parkland School District participates in the Lehigh Valley Conference and is a member of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association in District XI.
Multiple Sport Participation
The Parkland School District Athletic Department encourages students to participate in a variety of sports. This aligns with the recommendations from NCAA coaches and the philosophy that the best high school athletic experience places athletes in a wide variety of situations and a broad spectrum of peers and coaches. Unfortunately, many student athletes are misled into thinking that “more is better” and attempt to participate in club sports or other activities at the same time they are on our Parkland athletic teams. We urge parents to check with Parkland coaches BEFORE allowing children to participate in multiple sports or activities in the same season. With very few exceptions, it is not feasible to do so and those young athletes who do, find that they cannot perform at the level required. Further, the potential for injury due to fatigue and overuse becomes greater. Finally, Parkland sports are tied directly to academic achievement and appropriate behavior in school and during our athletic activities. Overloading a child’s schedule with more than one sport a season can have serious negative impact on both academic achievement and social behavior due to fatigue and stress. While we offer a wide range of opportunities at Parkland and know there are many other quality athletic experiences available outside our offerings, we ask that students pick one activity per season and strive to be the best they can during that time!
The Parkland Athletic Department recognizes current NCAA Division I and II Parkland alumni by placing signed photographs of them in our cafeteria lobby trophy case. These pictures stay there until graduation from the students’ respective colleges and are then permanently displayed on the walls of our ticket taking area at PHS. If you are a current college athlete or have a child who meets the criteria for recognition, please send us an 8” x 10” autographed, glossy action photo from their college media guide or action shot from a game. The photo can be dropped off at PHS or mailed to us at: Parkland High School Athletic Office, 2700 North Cedar Crest Blvd. Allentown PA 18104
