The introduction of competitive sports in the middle school years is an important step in the Waldorf Movement curriculum. Having developed physical skills and confidence playing cooperative games, students are now ready to apply those skills to more traditional competitive sports such as flag football, soccer and basketball. Participating in middle school athletics also gives students a chance to exercise their powers of social grace and sportsmanship as they compete against peers from other local schools.
Our High School Athletics program strengthens students’ health and fitness. Through both team and club sports we provide an opportunity to learn discipline, leadership and to function as part of a team. Competition helps to mark individual and team progress and exposes students and our entire school community to other high school students and families within the larger San Diego community. Physical fitness and athletics are all integral parts of the curriculum.
