Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) youth sports was created for the purpose of growing community-based programs that feed into PPS high schools. PPS middle schoolers can try out for and play on their neighborhood school’s PIL sports teams.
Note that the PIL program is run by the PIL Athletic Office, but individual teams are run by high school coaches in each cluster. As such, athlete participation is restricted to the neighborhood school associated with an athlete’s home address. Read the boundary map FAQs.
The mission of the Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) is to promote participation and sportsmanship through a competitive interscholastic athletic program. Every athlete is provided with opportunities, positive recognition, and learning experiences that support and maximize the academic goals of our High School. Athletics utilizes experiences that are inherently educational to foster lifelong lessons such as teamwork and self-discipline, while facilitating the physical and emotional development of our student athletes.
Communication for each school’s team is handled by coaches and volunteers, and can vary widely. The SES PTSA does its best to gather information on this page for parents, but please note: nobody on the PTSA or in the SES office will be able to answer questions about the program. If you’ve questions, your best bet is to visit the PIL contacts and websites page and find the most appropriate contact.
