General Information-Athletics

Please be advised that David Asuncion will be taking over the AD duties on an interim basis as of Jan 1st. Congratulations to you, Coach Asuncion! David is also UC's math department chairperson, Head Girls Basketball Coach, and has coached a number of high school athletic teams in northern California. The Athletic Department will be in very sound and capable hands moving forward.

A personal note from Coach Josten: I have accepted a position as an Assistant Principal at Vista High School. It is with mixed emotions that I leave UCHS. I have been very fortunate to work with such wonderful coaches, students, parents, and community members. There have been so many people who have made tremendous contributions to the students and programs at UC over my short time as AD. It has been my goal to develop the character of our students through athletics while opening new opportunities to them while they are in high school. I feel that in many ways I have succeeded, but also that the job is never quite done. I am confident that our students will continue to excel both on and off the courts and fields of our teams. I welcome any of you to contact me at Vista HS (whenever I establish contact information!) if you should ever need anything. I'll always keep a warm place in my heart for a fellow Centurion!

UCHS Student-athletes for SY 2017-18-  Plan to get your sports physical examination done and all of your clearance paperwork in to the Athletic Director (AD) before starting practice with your UC CIF team! Click the "Athletic Clearances" tab to the left of this page. You will need to turn in the 3 original athletic clearance documents to the AD prior to the first practice. The AD will be accepting athletic clearance documents before school, during lunch, and after school in room 225/the JROTC classroom (next to the weight room).

UCHS Letter Jacket Information- Parents and grandparents have been contacting the athletic department, seeking information regarding letter jackets. UCHS does not endorse any particular vendor, but here are some options that can get your search going and help you compare: Try the link below <http://www.jacketman.net>, you can also try Berry's Athletic Supply <http://berrysathleticsupply.com/> in Lemon Grove- some of our kids got their jacket there as well. Finally, try Greg Baumann- his phone number is 858-755-6653. If you have any other suggestions to add to this list, please advise the AD-  Coach Josten

Hello Parents and Student-Athletes,
Welcome to Athletics at University City High School!
Please have your son or daughter bring his or her signed Physical Examination form and the signed completion verification form and  directly to Coach Josten in person. He will take a few minutes to review the documents with the student-athlete. If it is incomplete, he will give it back to the athlete to complete and ask that they get it completed and bring back to him. Please do not leave your documents with someone else or drop it in Coach Josten's mailbox.

During the school year, Coach Josten can be found in Room 225 on a daily basis Monday through Friday. He teaches MCJROTC classes and is available before school, at lunch and after school for processing athletic packets. If those times do not work, please call to arrange an appointment.

Each year that a student wants to participate in sports he/she must have a medical exam by a licensed medical physician. Physicals can be done through your own doctor, CVS pharmacy, and by other medical clinics.
We have a certified Athletic Trainer, Cassie Farnsworth, who is available each day after school to treat our athletes on a walk-in basis. She is here to help all athletes. We highly recommend that if something is bothering an athlete, if he/she is injured or hurt, he/she should see the Trainer right after school. The trainer is limited to 22 hours of service per week. Please check the posting on her door to see current hours of operations and for an update on her current location.
We want all of our student-athletes to have pride in our sports programs and enjoy their high school playing experience while succeeding in the classroom and on the field!
Go Centurions!
