Welcome Letter

Welcome Letter


Welcome to another exciting year of Panther sports! In addition to our robust academic program, Peninsula is fortunate to have a vibrant, active, and engaged sports program. Peninsula provides our students with the opportunity to complement their academic ventures with athletic experiences that can create wonderful memories, build character, and create lifelong friendships.

Budget cutbacks by the State and Palos Verdes School District have reduced Peninsula High School’s funding for athletics. The program depends on parents and friends of Peninsula Athletics to help support our wonderful student athletes through memberships and donations to the Peninsula Athletic Booster Club (ABC). Your contributions to the ABC helps pay for athletic trainers, field and court maintenance, expanded training/weight room, track repairs, baseball and softball field netting, wrestling mats, surfboards, lacrosse helmets, tuff sheds for needed storage – PLUS SO MUCH MORE! Donations to the Peninsula ABC helps fund approximately one-third of the school’s athletic program budget.

There are a number of ways in which you can support Peninsula Athletics:

  • MEMBERSHIPS: Each level with increasing member benefits, including our premier Platinum level that includes a pass for two to all Peninsula High School events.
  • PANTHER CARDS: Providing discounts to local restaurants and shops!
  • A BLACK & GOLD AFFAIRE: This event will be held on March 7, 2020, at the Palos Verdes Golf Club, and will provide the largest share of our funding. Come enjoy a fun night out with friends catching up, celebrating senior athletes, and getting to know the coaches.
  • GENERAL MEETINGS: We would also love your involvement with the ABC at our monthly general meetings – come find out what is going on in the world of PVPHS sports, including updates from our student athletes! Visit pvphsabc.com for meeting schedule and location.

We start the 2019-20 athletic season off with our annual ABC Kick-Off Party, Saturday, September 7, 2019, 5:00pm. This is a free event! Come be our guest and enjoy the food and festivities, together with our coaches, friends, fellow parents, and supporters of Peninsula Athletics!

We appreciate all your support for and dedication to our student athletes.
