Mission Statement

Parker Athletics provides an educationally based experience that promotes collaboration between teammates, coaches, and community while developing strong moral and performance character.  As an extension of the classroom, our student-athletes are coached in life-long lessons and work to develop themselves as better people.

Shared Purpose

Through participation as a student-athlete,  we believe students will answer yes to the following questions:

  1. Do I belong here?

  2. Did I get better?

  3. What did I learn?


Athletics Team

Coach Kreger, Building Athletic Director  608-743-5645

I lead to inspire and empower others through meaningful relationships in a positive and disciplined culture that focuses on continuous learning.

Mr. McClowry, District Athletic Director

Definition of Success

Parker Athletics defines success by:

  • Did we create lifelong relationships?
  • Did we create lifelong memories?
  • Did we teach and model lifelong lessons?

Purpose Vision

We provide purpose-based athletic programs in a positive and disciplined culture that focuses on continuous learning.

  • We are an extension of the school day.  Our coaches are mentors and teachers who intentionally develop character skills and create a sense of pride, community, and belonging for our students.
  • For many, their sport practice or competition is the most important “class” of the day.
  • We strive to connect students with transformational mentors.
  • During the pursuit of winning or excellence, students will experience challenges - it is in those moments that lessons are taught.
  • We will plan, prepare, and perform to win; however, it is not our purpose.

Please see the information on Concussions 

Wisconsin State Concussion Law (Act 172) was passed in 2011.  This law mandates distribution of preseason educational information sheets to be signed by coaches, athletes and parents.  It also recommends immediate removal of any athlete with a suspected concussion and no same day return to play.  Finally, all injured athletes require written medical clearance from an appropriate health care professional.

  • Impact Testing

    • Baseline test of brain function so we have a standard for comparison if we suspect an athlete has suffered a concussion.

    • Administered on the computer by Eric LeFave (Athletic Trainer)

    • Who takes the impact test?  Only incoming 9th, 11th, and athletes out for the 1st time, or anyone who has suffered a concussion in the past.

      • Fall: Football, Soccer

      • Winter: Wrestling, Hockey, Gymnastics, Basketball

      • Spring: Soccer, Track & Field Jumps & Vault
