De La Salle has a rich history in athletics. Many know our name from the fame we garnered during our 151-game football winning streak under the watchful eye of Coach Bob Ladouceur. However, we’ve been a force of nature across all of our athletic programs for many years. In total, De La Salle athletic teams have collected 260 league titles, 172 North Coast Section (NCS) championships, 15 Northern California championships, 22 CIF State Championships, and six national titles.
Our players go on to have highly successful collegiate careers, as well as professional sports careers in Major League Soccer, the National Football League, Major League Baseball, and the National Basketball Association to name a few. We have even had former student-athletes compete in U.S. Championships, on national teams, and at the Olympics.
2021-2022 Year In Review
At the end of the 2021-2022 school year, De La Salle was once again named the top boys' sports program in California by Cal-Hi Sports. This capped a phenomenal season that saw the Spartans winning the CIF State Golf Championship, as well as the CIF Northern California Baseball Championship. In addition to the state championships, De La Salle collected nine NCS championships across a wide range of sports including water polo, golf, swimming and diving, baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and wrestling. It also picked up seven East Bay Athletic League (EBAL) championships. At the club level, our rugby team won both the California Single School and the Northern California Premier title games, to earn a No. 1 ranking in the state and nationally.
De La Salle is focused on preparing its students for college and life. As such, student-athletes need to maintain a 2.0 GPA in order to participate in De La Salle sports programs. To this end, our athletic department works closely with De La Salle educators to ensure that each student-athlete feels fully supported in their pursuit of learning. De La Salle student-athletes are also expected to display good sportsmanship at all times. We encourage both current and future athletes to familiarize themselves with our Sportsmanship Code.
De La Salle Athletic Facilities
De La Salle uses the latest training techniques to maximize student-athlete potential. At the same time, thanks to the generosity of its community, students have access to modern sports facilities, including a state-of-the-art weight room. As part of the school’s mission to support students spiritually, mentally, and physically, De La Salle employs several training and conditioning staff, as well as personal counselors, to ensure the health and well-being of its student-athletes. The school also has a Team Physician.
