Our athletics tradition is characterized by dedication, hard work, and success. Our coaches provide their teams with a structured and top-quality experience, through which our students master the integrity and responsibility necessary for exemplary teamwork. Along the way, they become stronger and healthier, more resilient, and more skilled. Since our earliest days, our focus on grit and grace has made for fierce competitors and trusted teammates, and has allowed us to punch above our weight.
We use athletics to teach leadership, followership, and to learn to be part of something bigger than oneself. We expect that all Stevenson students participate fully in our co-curricular programming as part of the holistic educational experience the school offers.
We maintain an athletics program as competitive as it is principled, and provide a blend of opportunities from traditional sports to other co-curricular opportunities, such as outdoor education and other non-athletic team options. We take coaching seriously as an area for professional development, and dedicate the resources needed to enhance our coaches’ skill, creativity, and expertise.
At Stevenson, athletics is viewed as both a pleasure and a discipline. Coaches teach their athletes to play hard and to play to win, while never compromising the ideal of sportsmanship. We expect our coaches to always have their players’ well-being as their primary objective. Our coaches stress the importance of fair play, teamwork, and respect for officials and opponents. The ultimate goal is to bring students from different walks of life, with varying degrees of skills, and mold them into a cohesive unit. We see winning as an outcome derived from daily commitment to the process of getting 1% better while teaching student-athletes the importance of responsibility to their teammates and commitment to a common effort.
As a result of this approach, Stevenson has a rich history of success across all sports annually competing for league titles and advancing to postseason play.
