A Message of the Director of Athletics

In keeping with the College’s commitment to nurturing the whole child and programmatic excellence, we are looking to enhance our athletic program to better meet the needs of our competitive and recreational athletes, while developing sport specific and leadership skills in all students.

It is essential to encourage and motivate students to do their best, reach for new challenges outside of their comfort zone and learn that failure is part of life. Open communication is key. This includes setting clear expectations, providing positive feedback as well as guidance and support when addressing areas for improvement. There is no one “right model”. Understanding the individual needs of each student is critical to help them reach their full potential.

Athletics plays an important role in the development of lifelong attitudes about health fitness, sportsmanship and cooperation. Students participating in team sports learn leadership, perserverance and responsibility. Physical education can also help students develop mental toughness and self-confidence. There is something very powerful about exceeding your limits, pushing through a physical barrier and achieving something that you once believed was out of your reach.
