Victory With Honor
The Athletic Program at Clairemont High School is an integral part of the education system. We have a legacy of strong athletics dating back more than a half a century.
Sports expand the learning experiences and growth opportunities for the students who participate. It helps them develop healthy habits, positive attitudes, and ideals necessary for ethical competition and cooperation in our society. It also provides our students with the unique opportunities for self-discipline, self-sacrifice, and loyalty to the community, school, and the team.
Clairemont High School provides a well-rounded program of intersholastic athletics for both young men and women. We encourage all students to participate for their health, their personal development, and life experiences. Competition and cooperation are prized on our culture and an athletic program, under competent leadership, fosters both.

After 37 Years Of Dedication To The
San Diego Unified School District As
Athletic Director, Physical Education Teacher, APE Specialist &
Gerry Knuppel Retires.
Over the past 37 years he has touched many lives on and off the court, on and off the mat, on and off the field coaching Track & Field, Badminton, Volleyball, Wrestling, and Football. He teaches more than the sport, though. He teaches his students how to over come adversity, to exceed their limits, and to be successful in life. His motivation has always been the students. ” Be good to the kids and they will be good for you. Keep them first.” – Gerry KnuppelWe would like to Thank You Coach, for always keeping Clairemont first and giving so much of your time and experience to your colleagues as well as your students.
You will be missed.
