IF YOU DONT BELIEVE, YOU DONT BELONG!

Desert Heights offers athletic programs starting in kindergarten. We start with camps, athletes then move into the Junior level and transition into Senior level at they elementary campus. Starting in 5th grade, we offer competitive junior high sports (5th-8th grade) to build into our high school Junior Varsity and Varsity programs. We are a competitive program that starts with our athletes at a young level developing work ethic, teamwork, and fundamental skills. We build champions at Desert Heights. Our department works hard to develop the best program in Arizona! 

In making the commitment to participate in interscholastic athletics at DHPA, you have also chosen to become a part of a tradition that recognizes our Three Pillars (Academic Excellence, Integrity of Charter, and Social Awareness). DHPA is committed to providing opportunities through athletics for our student-athletes to mature physically, emotionally, academically, and socially. While we recognize the value of participation in athletics, our primary focus will always be academics. We will continue to utilize our sports programs to support and enhance our academics.

DHPA Coyote Athletics measures success not only by win-loss records and league championships, but also by the development in our student-athletes. We expect our student-athletes to have exemplary character, a commitment to excellence in all endeavors, and a lifelong pursuit of an active and healthy lifestyle.
