2014-07 Note from the CHS Athletic Directors

 

For the last five months, we have served Chilton High School as the co-interim Athletic Directors.  The process hasn’t always been easy, but it has been extremely rewarding.  From our first two days on the job when school and athletic events were canceled due to the extreme cold, through the spring sports season, we’ve been blessed with the opportunity to see firsthand what makes our school and athletic departments so special.  Our administration, custodial & maintenance staff, secretarial staff, business office, faculty, coaches, and local officials work tirelessly to provide our student athletes with the first class opportunities they deserve.  Much of what they do goes unnoticed, as it had to us prior to this opportunity, but they never stop working to help our kids.  Our student athletes, from the hard work they’ve put in, and the support they’ve shown each other, are the backbone of our programs.  The students and athletes, parents, fans, and everyone previously mentioned are what truly make Chilton a special place to work and live.  To all of these people and the countless others that have supported and helped us during the last 5 months….THANK YOU!

New Conference

The 2015-16 school year will be the first school year for the newly formed Olympian Eastern Wisconsin Conference (EWC).  Approximately every seven years, the WIAA looks at each region of our state, and analyzes school enrollments and travel distances of schools with similar enrollments.  With that information, WIAA modifies the conferences to keep travel distances minimal, and to keep schools in conferences with similar enrollment together.  Chilton, Brillion, Roncalli, and Valders will be leaving the Olympian Conference to join four schools from the Eastern Wisconsin Conference:  New Holstein, Kiel, Sheboygan Falls, and Two Rivers.  The new conference, referred to as the EWC, will be extremely competitive.  Current conference rivals Hilbert, Reedsville, Mishicot, St. Mary Central, Manitowoc Lutheran, and Wrightstown will all be moving to different conferences, as well.

Did You Know

Chilton High School’s sports teams have won 10 conference championships in the last 2 years.

Summer BFS Program

The Bigger Faster Stronger (BFS) training program is a scientifically proven strengthening program for student athletes who are both in and out of season (male and female).  The BFS program focuses on perfect technique while building the athlete’s muscular strength, endurance, foot speed, running speed, agility, power, cardiovascular endurance, self-esteem and injury prevention all while building off of the students natural genetic abilities.  The summer BFS program will be held during summer school hours starting June 9th from 8am- 10am and 10am- noon on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through June 26th.  This program will remain available to anyone who is interested through July 18th.  As mentioned, Chilton High School sports’ teams have accomplished many great things during the past two years.  No matter the sport, having our student athletes participate in a consistent, structured, cohesive program will not only help keep consistency in Chilton athletics, but also help Chilton athletes reach their full potential throughout their high school careers.
