Sportsmanship. Teamwork. Conditioning. Commitment.
Playing sports instills many valuable lessons and delivers many lifelong benefits.
Park's athletic program introduces students to a variety of individual and team sports, giving them opportunities to develop sport-specific skills, tactical awareness, and physical conditioning. Students also learn the importance of mutual respect and personal responsibility, they form deeper friendships with teammates, and they gain self-confidence.
Park coaches teach and expect good sportsmanship and cooperation and encourage their teams to exhibit a healthy winning spirit and a strong sense of fair play. Most coaches are also teachers, and they expect the same degree of hard work and commitment on the playing field that they require in the classroom.
Park's athletic program is divided into two parts: intramural competition for Grades 4 and 5 and interscholastic competition for Grades 6–8.
Athletics for Grades 6–8
More than 90 percent of Upper Division students opt to play interscholastic sports on our varsity, junior varsity, or Grade 6 teams at some point during each year.
Sports for Grades 4 and 5
After-school sports provide an opportunity for students to learn fundamental skills and tactics in soccer, field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse. Two times per week athletes meet for intramural games and training sessions. Girls meet on Mondays and Thursdays, and boys meet on Wednesdays and Fridays.
