Venice FL and the Sarasota County area has so much to offer for entertainment, dining, shopping and of course the sun, sand and water fun of all kinds. But today we get to highlight something near and dear to the hearts of many who follow high school sports in the Suncoast.....The Top 100 Best High School Sports Programs in Florida!  This is the first in a series to be done by Niche Rankings for the 2016 school year, and like so many rankings done in 2015 by Niche, the suncoast schools have represented themselves well!  We all know the critical role our schools play in creating well rounded kids, but they have also served as a place to develop strength, endurance, perseverance and character through athletics. Lessons learned both through practice and competition.

So, why do we love sports so much?

For one it’s an emotional outlet.  We live the game with the players on the field.  Sports bring us all together to witness, and testify to the amazing athletes who play the games & compete.  We marvel at their physical prowess and athletic abilities, we respect the work put in to create the athlete, but above all, what matters to the fans is the performance and the rankings of High Schools around Florida!
