To Teach, Compete with Honor and Dignity, Serve Community, and Pursue Excellence
Welcome to Outlaws athletics! Our athletic program is proud to be part of our excellent offerings of co-curricular opportunities at Sisters High School. We purposefully categorize Sisters Athletics as “co-curricular” not “extra-curricular” because, as a coaching staff, our goal is to be an integral part of the teaching mission of our school. Our coaches believe that their work is an extension of the classroom. In addition to learning the “X’s and O’s” of sport specific drills, our student-athletes will develop lifelong values of teamwork, leadership, dedication, sportsmanship, goal setting, maintaining composure, poise, developing a strong work ethic, balancing busy schedules, and living a healthy lifestyle, which will ultimately assist them in becoming upstanding men and women who give back to their community.
Beyond wins and losses, the primary goal of our athletic department is to provide a program that clearly demonstrates that athletics is a positive and energizing means to advance the physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and moral development of our student-athletes. Simply put, our coaches strive to “coach for character”.

Outlaws Together Creed
Role Model – We will act in a way that is a role model for how we want our players, parents, coaches, and spectators to behave.
Pride – We know our actions represent our students, our school, and the entire community of Sisters. We will act in a manner that represents our community in a positive way, and we will encourage others to do the same.
Respect – We welcome our opponents into our community and treat all opponents, fans, administrators and officials with courtesy.
Everyone at a game is one of the following:
Player, Coach, Official, or Spectator
It is wise to choose only one of those roles at a time.
