Welcome to Eastside High School Athletics. We are extremely proud of our sports programs, our athletic staff, coaching staff and, certainly, our student athletes. Each year EHS is committed to embracing innovative and progressive means to improve academic and athletic growth to promote a positive high school experience for all students. EHS has a rich tradition in high school sports competition, and we hold all our student-athletes accountable to adhere to the Code of Ethics to maintain quality character on and off the playing field/court.
It is our mission to prepare each student for success at the college/university of their choosing and in their chosen career. We believe in instilling the ideas of progress and devotion to attainment with high expectations, as we help foster relationships and build accountability among all individuals involved. We vow to continue and expand the excellence already in place with the highest standards of integrity and pride to become a premier athletic organization and prepare all children for college and career readiness.
Eastside High School offers three seasons of sports for registered students. Many of the sports have both varsity and junior varsity levels of play, enabling students to learn a new sport and improve their playing ability. Some sports, due to limited team size, hold tryouts for available positions. Eastside competes in the Big North Conference, Passaic County Coaches Association, North Jersey Super Football Conference and New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association.
