Why Athletics Matter to Us
At Christchurch School, we see sports as more than just an intramural activity — it’s a crucial component of our mission and community. Every student here has an opportunity to play, whether they aspire to become college athletes or just want to have fun. We understand that athletic competition helps young people learn the values of hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, and teamwork. We want to give basketball players the opportunity to learn lessons that will stick with them long after they leave the court.
Our coaches also are teachers and dorm parents, meaning they know the players on their team as whole people, not just by their position on the depth chart. This means they know what it takes to motivate each student to be the best person he or she can be.
We’re also dedicated to helping our student body achieve the highest standards of physical fitness. We know how important it is to be physically and mentally fit. With the guidance of our staff and the tight-knit nature of our campus, students learn how to live a healthier lifestyle and build confidence that will serve them later in life.
