The St. John Bosco High School Athletics Department was established and exists to offer lessons in spirituality, stamina and teamwork. Our interscholastic program teaches the Salesian qualities of sacrifice, self-discipline and dedication.

These character-building tools -- along with perseverance, the desire to play fairly and grace in winning and losing -- further the school’s goal of fostering individual growth and physical activity, which lead to mental and physical health. The Braves compete in the Trinity League, recognized as the most competitive league in California.

We currently have earned 11 CIF team championships, 2 So Cal Regional championships, 7 State championships and 1 National title.  We also have 313 All-CIF, 42 All-State and 24 All-American Student-Athletes. We offer 12 CIF-sponsored sports with 38 separate teams. 80% of our student population participates in one or more of our sports, and six of our 12 CIF-sponsored sports are "non-cut," giving all student-athletes an opportunity to participate.

At all times, the program is complementary and supportive of the Salesian Educational System, which emphasizes the concepts of teaching and serving youth while incorporating the all-important tenants of religion, reason, and kindness.
