Parents and Students

Welcome to the VHSL website!  The Virginia High School League is a private non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.  As an alliance of Virginia's public and approved non-boarding, non-public high schools we rely on membership dues, grants and corporate support to run athletic and academic programs for Virginia's youth.  The VHSL partners with responsible citizens and businesses that have the same positive and productive vision for our youth.

More than 200,000 high school students participate annually in VHSL athletic and academic competitions and programs.  The League sponsors championships in 27 sports and 9 academic activities.

Some of the resources available to parents and students on this website include information about our state events, results of district and region events (when provided), the VHSL Handbook, and the VHSL Book of Records. All VHSL athletic competitions, with the exception of golf, tennis and girls lacrosse, are conducted in accordance with game rules published by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).  All NFHS rule books are copyright protected and therefore we are not able to publish them on our site.  Rule books may be purchased directly from the NFHS by going to their website,

The VHSL encourages the participation of all students in extracurricular activities, and encourages all parents to support their children and the children of others in a positive way.
