|The athletic program at Western Mennonite School is designed to enrich the spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional well-being of athletes. It provides competitive opportunities where students can develop values of teamwork, integrity, sportsmanship, commitment, perseverance, and self-discipline. We follow a strict no cut policy, allowing each student to participate on teams and experience competitive play.The Pioneers have a long history of athletic excellence in the Tri-River conference. Competing under the Oregon Schools Athletic Association (OSAA), our teams consistently play in post-season games and move on to the State tournament. Our legacy of competitive athletic teams has spanned over 50 years.
Community supporters of faculty, staff, parents, alumni and local businesses are the foundation of this program. They make up the coaching staff, fans, and financial providers who encourage students. Their efforts have helped these teams succeed in competing and also in building up students.
