Long Beach has a rich tradition in athletics. This tradition is testimony to our excellent athletes, our excellent coaching staff, administrative support and parents who value athletic involvement for their children. Athletics plays an important part in the life of our district. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic program. Athletic participation also plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.

Currently, the Long Beach City School District interscholastic athletic program is comprised of 85 teams: 34 varsity, 20 junior varsity and 31 middle school teams.
