Portola PridE

Established in 2016, The Portola Pep Squad is built on the foundation of Portola's essential core values of Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Drive, and Empathy. These values aim to develop and strengthen our student athletes.


The Portola Pep Squad is a year-round sport for all students in which the squad supports the Football, Basketball and Wrestling teams. In addition, the Portola Pep Squad offers a Competitive Team that is open to non-squad members and gives members the opportunity to compete against teams across the nation. 


The Pep Squad is a year-long commitment with practices 4 times a week from 2:30 - 4:30pm. During Football Season, the Pep Squad supports and attends games every Thursday (JV) and Friday (Varsity). Basketball and Wrestling Season games vary throughout January and February. Furthermore, the Competition Team practices regularly from December to February. 

Tryouts for the Pep Squad are held in the beginning of March and practices begin immediately after tryouts.
