Harvest Park Middle School is an active participant in the Tri-Valley Athletic League (TVAL).

We compete against other middle schools from Dublin, Livermore, and Pleasanton.

Our League believes that athletic participation is an integral part of the common mission of our schools and is viewed as an extension of our overall school programs.  We hold the philosophy that participation in interscholastic athletics should be enjoyable with the purpose of benefiting students.  Our league sports are developmental and competitive with goals of fostering the value of participation without overemphasizing winning.  Additional goals of the league are to develop skills and an understanding of the chosen sport, develop an appreciation and respect for TEAM as well as school, opponents, and officials.

An overview of team information will be available on our website for each particular sport.


All students must have a doctor’s physical within the last year in order to tryout for any sport at HP.  District policy. No exceptions.  


Get your physical and turn in your Athletic Packet ASAP so you are ready!

Small Stipends are available. Interviews, background checks, First Aid/CPR certification, Concussion Training and adherence to TVAL coaching expectations are required.

Athletic Community Service 

Keeping in line with the Pleasanton Unified School District’s new Mission and Vision statements:

Mission:
Our students will make a better world

Vision:
Every student will be a resourceful, resilient, responsible and engaged world citizen.

This year, all HP student-athletes are being asked to contribute a minimum of 2 hours of service back to their school or community. As a team, there are many ways teams will be able to contribute or give back to the community or to the improvement of our campus. Ideas should be discussed by the team and coach, then approved by the Athletic Director, Dan McHone.
