Middle School Athletics: Grades 6-8

WSSD supports the high ideals of a healthy participation in athletic endeavors. Our athletic program for Grades 6-8 gives the students the opportunity to participate in team sports.  To work together to understand the meaning of teamwork, to learn the importance of discipline, respect and sportsmanship, especially in the face of adversity. It gives the athletes a healthy regimen of physical exercise to balance the challenges of their daily academic work as well as the opportunity to work toward mastery in specific skill-sets.

Student-athletes learn how to balance their academic work with their athletic endeavors. Coaches and teachers work together with students to help guide them in understanding the importance of achieving this balance.

Our school places a high priority on good sportsmanship from our athletes, coaches, and parents. All student-athletes are expected to embrace the school’s tradition of outstanding sportsmanship, citizenship and fair play.
