Character. Commitment. Responsibility. Teamwork. Enjoyment.
Playing sports instills many valuable lessons and delivers many lifelong benefits.
Park's athletics 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, forming deeper friendships with teammates, and gaining self-confidence.
Park coaches teach and expect good sportsmanship and cooperation. They encourage their teams to exhibit a healthy winning spirit and a strong sense of fair play. Most coaches are also teachers and expect the same degree of hard work and commitment on the playing field that they require in the classroom.
Park's athletics program is divided into two parts: intramural competition for Grade 4 and interscholastic competition for Grades 5–8.
Athletics for Grades 5–8
More than 90 percent of Upper Division students opt to play interscholastic sports on our varsity or junior varsity teams at some point during each year.
Sports for Grade 4
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.
