Web Ch STUDENT LIFE NO UNEDITED AVAIL

Athletics

We believe that all aspects of our students' well-being are important and that valuable experience is gained through participation in athletics and other opportunities for physical activity. We offer our students several programs that challenge them to learn specific athletic skills, self-discipline, self-confidence, leadership, cooperation, and good sportsmanship. Coaches are expected to uphold our standards and teach the valuable lessons that are learned from athletic competition. All athletic programs are co-educational. Required registration forms may be found under the FORMS section of STUDENT LIFE.

Basketball (4th-6th grades):

We field two teams of approximately 12 players each. Students may try-out during a specific period in October. Each team has 2-3 coaches who are usually school parents. Practices and HOME games are held on Copeland Court in the Multi-purpose Building. Practices are scheduled for weekday afternoons and occasionally on weekends. Games are held during the week and on Saturdays. Our teams compete against other independent schools in the area. Parent volunteers are always needed to assist with various aspects of the basketball program. Registration and Medical Release forms are required for participation. Uniforms are also required and are purchased by parents.

Soccer (1st-6th grades):

Students may participate as long as they have had one year prior experience. We field two teams of 1st-3rdgraders and two teams of 4th-6th graders. Each team has 2-3 coaches who are usually high school student-athletes, many of whom are All Saints' alumni. Practices and HOME games are held on the front lawn of the school. Practices are scheduled for weekday afternoons and occasionally on the weekends. Games are held only during the week. Our teams compete against other independent schools in the area. Parent volunteers are always needed to assist with various aspects of the soccer program. Registration and Medical Release forms are required for participation. Uniforms are also required and are purchased by parents.
