Athletics at St. George’s Episcopal School consists of a continuum of goals centered on basic skill development and broad exposure to sports clinics in lower school, gradually moving into a balance between competition, excellence and participation in middle school. The athletics program fosters solid moral values, sportsmanship and commitment to excellence. Membership on a team comes with the obligation to attend and work hard at practices and to put forth a high degree of effort in game situations. The level of commitment required rightly increases as the level of competition increases. Athletics in middle school emphasizes participation, basic skill development and knowledge of the sport. Whenever possible, we will have several teams representing different levels of competition. An emphasis on sportsmanship begins at the lower school level and continues throughout each progression of involvement.
