General Information

Deer Lakes competes in 17 boys and girls varsity sports including: boys and girls basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, track and field, and volleyball.  The Lancers also compete in girls softball and boys baseball and football.
We are extremely proud of our rich traditions in Western Pennsylvania high school athletics and we are proud members of the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA).


The primary aim of our athletic program is to offer our student-athletes the opportunity to gain positive experiences outside of their academic pursuits.  We achieve that objective by fostering an environment that is student centered and develops learning outcomes in skills, emotional patterns, communication, interpersonal group dynamics, teamwork, leadership, general knowledge, and sportsmanship.
