Joliet Township High School Athletics
Welcome to Joliet Township Athletics! The two sports programs have gotten off to a great start this year. This has been due to the overwhelming response of our students at Joliet Township District 204. As we move forward we must continue to remember that the main goal of the split of the sports program is to create additional opportunities for our students. The split of the athletic programs has done just that. In the fall we had a total of 900+ plus athletes participating at both campuses. Amazingly, in the 2006-2007 school year, there were 1200 athletes for all seasons combined. We still have two seasons to go! As we continue to develop our programs it will be of utmost importance to exercise patience. Many of the programs have only existed at one campus or the other and it will take some time to develop and mold our programs into what we want them to be. Also, just exposing kids to the opportunities that exist will take some time and work. We will continue to work with our feeder schools and community programs as partners in this process. I am so proud of our coaches at both campuses and how they have handled this very exciting time. Many of our varsity coaches lost athletes in the split but always kept focus on the task at hand and never complained or made excuses. The coaches understood that our school district, our community, and their individual schools would be better by creating more opportunities for our youth. Thank you to our parents and community to make this dream come true in Joliet again. You can be assured that the Athletic Department will continue to work hard to make the Joliet Central Steelmen and Joliet West Tigers the best that they can be. See you at the games!
