I would like to invite you all to the annual Grizzly Madness Auction and Gala. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 30th at Crow Canyon Country Club. Doors will open at 6:15pm for a no host bar and poker tournament followed by dinner, silent auction, live auction, and a night of fun and games. Included in the night will be performances by the Cal High Jazz band and local Hawaiian Band Pomaika’i.
All proceeds will benefit the California High School Athletic Booster Club (CAB). CAB’s support is what allows Cal High’s athletic programs to operate financially and their continued donations allows Grizzly Athletics to have some of the nicest equipment, facilities, uniforms, and supplies in the Bay Area.
Thank you in advance for supporting California High School Athletics,

EBAL Admission Charges 2015-16
Each school has determined what sports they will charge for, here is what was decided for this school year:
Boys & Girls Basketball
*Sports that have EBAL Championship events will still charge admission.
The SRVUSD has decided to unify what sports they will charge for: Football & Basketball.
$8 Adult (& children without an adult)
$5 Student & Senior Citizens (HOME students w/ Student Body sticker)
$5 Children (under 12 w/ an adult)
*$5 for Frosh ONLY football games, and all sports other than football and basketball.
High School athletics in the San Ramon Valley Unified School district are “self-funded.” We cannot run the programs without your support. High Schools do not receive district (tax dollar) funds for equipment, uniforms, transportation, and most coaching stipends. As such, voluntary donations are solicited to fund these valuable programs. Without your generous donations sports at California High School cannot be offered. High school sports cost much less than outside club sports. Please keep them afloat and ongoing with your donation.
Voluntary Donations (defined)
Voluntary donations are needed to help alleviate our coaching staff from necessary administrative duties that the Athletic Department performs, and allows coaches to focus on our student-athletes.
These donations cover major operating costs of our athletic budget which includes: officials, equipment, possible athletic trainers, supervision/security, facility, first aid supplies, CIF, NCS & League fees and various general expenses to operate our athletic department budget.. The suggested donation will be detailed in a specific sport budget presented to parents at an orientation meeting after teams have been finalized.
Eligibility: It is a privilege, not a right, to participate in any extra-curricular activity. To be eligible to tryout for any sport, SRVUSD mandates that all athletes have a 2.0 GPA or higher based on their last quarter’s grades. A 2.0 GPA or higher must be maintained throughout the season or the athlete will become ineligible to participate.
IMPORTANT: New SRVUSD Volunteer Requirements
SRVUSD is implementing a new system for all adults who wish to volunteer on a school campus or drive/chaperone day and overnight field trips and athletic events. This new Volunteer Management System features a web-based software application that allows the District and all schools to better track and provide the appropriate level of clearance for school volunteers.
ALL adult volunteers will need to go through this new process. The District will NOT be asking parents to incur any of the costs associated with these clearance processes. For more information, and to begin the application process, click here (http://www.srvusd.net/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1275747828981).
