We afford opportunities to every player. If we have more athletes than we need on one team, we just create another. Elementary school athletes don't know if they are destined for a college program; they simply play early on for the enjoyment. As a coach and PE teacher, my goal is to foster their desire to play and make individual and team sports fun and interesting yet appropriately competitive. I'm happy for all Country School alumni who play either recreationally or in high school or even in college because I provided them with the experiences and laid the foundation for them to enjoy a lifetime of activity. Beyond developing athletic skills, participation on a team allows our athletes to learn the importance of relying on, supporting, and cooperating with each other to meet with success. Country School athletes take pride in their accomplishments on and off the field.
