Athletic Director Welcome Letter

Welcome to the 2020-21 Wauwatosa East High School Athletics school year!

As I enter into my sixth year at Wauwatosa East I am excited for what we’ve accomplished and look forward to the new and exciting avenues ahead for the new school year. As we had the unfortunate timing of having to shut down due to Covid-19 virus and have no spring season, that was a first for me.  We’ve all experienced something during this time that I’m sure we never thought we’d go through.  I’m excited that we will be having a fall season, although condensed, but this gives pause to appreciate all that we do have in our lives and the opportunities athletics presents to us all.  Hopefully we can progress through winter and spring sports and continue with these opportunities for everyone, especially the hard working girls and boys along with the coaches who are adjusting along the way.

Wauwatosa East High School provides a great learning environment for each and every student that attends. The academic demands are high to provide a greater opportunity for the students after high school to be successful in any endeavor they pursue.

Tosa East is a member of the WIAA and of the Greater Metro Conference, where we compete against other greater Milwaukee area schools in both boys and girls sports. Our football program is in the stand alone Parkland Conference. We co-op with Wauwatosa West HS in four sports; wrestling, boys swim/dive, boys and girls golf.    We also co-op with several schools in both girls and boys ice hockey.  Boys swim/dive and both hockey programs compete in the Classic 8 conference.

Athletics provides many positive attributes in a young individual; develop self-esteem, leadership skills, social interactions and education about healthy lifestyle choices. A positive and strong work ethic can also emerge by being part of a team. Athletics can develop a greater sense of purpose to ones’ self by teaching teamwork, forgiveness, humility and excellence. High school athletics provides the chance for an individual to develop physically, mentally and socially.

We expect to challenge and develop the student-athletes by providing great competitive opportunities in both practice and game situations. Our expectation is to have great scholar-athletes by the time they graduate from Tosa East.

Student-athletes, coaches and parents are all expected to demonstrate good sportsmanship, community involvement and a strong code of conduct. As the public holds student-athletes to a higher scrutiny, we must work to demonstrate good judgment and a positive perspective of high school athletics. Success and pride will come from competing the right way.
