ALWAYS A VIKING

Participation in extra-curricular athletics and activities provides our students the opportunity to become good citizens by displaying sportsmanship, dedication, effort, responsibility, and the desire to be successful. In return, it offers equitable opportunities, positive recognition, and learning experiences to students while maximizing the achievement of educational goals.

Resources and opportunities are available to all our Vinton-Shellsburg Students.

Extra-curricular athletics and activities instill a sense of pride in the community, teach life-long lessons of teamwork and self-discipline and facilitate the physical and emotional development of our students.
