I would like to welcome you all to OUR Viper 2019-2020 Athletic Season. We would not be a great Viper Family without the support & commitment of our Athletes, Administration, Parents, & Coaches. The Varela Athletic Department is committed to provide our athletes with opportunities to compete in an equitable, sportsmanlike, and wholesome manner. I would like to personally invite the parents, students, faculty & community to become a Viper Lifer & support our young men and women on the fields & courts of their perspective sports. 

Looking forward to seeing you and sharing our children’s special moments in both Academics & Athletics.  So be sure to stop by the Athletic Office for your Viper Apparel or for your Viper V.I.P Pass!
