Interscholastic Athletics (Extra-Curricular Activities)
The West Contra Costa Unified School District provides students with the opportunity to compete in quality athletic competition at the high school level. We believe that athletic participation is an integral part of the total educational program at Hercules High School. We provide experiences beyond the school classroom curriculum where participants learn sportsmanship, teamwork, commitment and leadership. Student-athletes and coaches should always conduct themselves in a manner that brings respect and integrity to themselves, the school and our community.

The TCAL is composed of Salesian, Albany, De Anza, El Cerrito, John Swett, Kennedy, Pinole Valley, Richmond, St. Joseph/Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, St. Patrick’/St. Vincent, Vallejo and Bethel High Schools.
