Program Overview

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.

Philosophy

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.

A few students who participate in non-interscholastic athletic programs not offered by the school (such as gymnastics, equestrian programs, martial arts, dance lessons, etc.) can apply for the independent sport option. If approved, this program offers these students the opportunity to receive physical activity credit outside the school’s offerings.

Program Goals

We believe that a healthy life includes regular physical activity. To support this philosophy, every Stevenson student is required to participate in a physical activity (community based) each term of their enrollment.

The co-curricular program teaches our students to be invested in whatever activities and commitments they choose to take on in life. The program emphasizes this approach by helping students see commitments through to the end, even when they are challenging and difficult.

Recognizing that teamwork is a skill that is important in many areas of life, we expect all ninth and tenth grade students to participate in a team-based activity, through the school, a minimum of two seasons in each of their first two years. We highly encourage all new students to participate in a team-based activity during all three seasons of their first year on campus to grow their potential network of friends, teammates, and coaches in addition to learning how to play different roles within ever-changing group dynamics.

In addition to the rigorous academic experience our students receive, engaging with our community outside of class and building relationships within other surroundings is a foundational value that serves our graduates well beyond their time at Stevenson. They learn how to navigate complicated group dynamics, role definition, and successes and failures as part of a team which sets them up for success in life.
