Welcome to Sea King Football.
It is both strange and exciting to be welcoming you to our Football Program as we head into 2021. As this is being composed, we are continuing to prepare with the hope that our “2020” season can still happen– at least in some fashion. Many of our players were right where you are only a few months ago, eager to begin their Sea King journey. With our present players on our minds, we’d like to invite you to be part of our Sea King Football Family. I hope that you and your families are healthy and safe, and pray for the opportunity to get back on the field soon!
We feel our program is both challenging and rewarding as we strive to do our best on and off the field. Our program has participated in 4 CIF Championships since 2012, earning 2 Titles. In our last season of play, our Varsity Team completed one of the best regular seasons in school history while competing against some of the strongest programs in California, finishing with an undefeated Bay League Championship. Our Lower Levels continued their success and earned Bay League Championships as well- all while learning the fundamentals of Sea King Football. Please know that in order to participate in Freshmen Football experience is helpful, but certainly NOT necessary. We invite all incoming 9th graders who want to learn the game, work hard, and have a positive TEAM experience.
We would like to recognize and thank this year’s Team- especially the seniors- the class of 2021– for their amazing dedication, work-ethic, togetherness, and inspiration in preparing for a season that is unknown. Your commitment of Doing What WE Do, with as much EFFORT as WE CAN during these tough times is a legacy that will light the way for Sea Kings for years to come. Palos Verdes Football 2020/2021…For Each other!
