Haverford High School Student-Athlete Advisory Committee
Each team has a Senior and Junior representative that reflects the values we hope to promote through Haverford athletics, including leadership, integrity, effort, equity, respect, and service.

Group meetings will include leadership training and discussion, community service, college and career readiness, and increased student advocacy for positive behavior and positive relationships. They will be promoting school pride and reaching out to our youth athletes at Haverford Middle School and throughout the community.
