At The Country Day School, we have a balanced approach to athletics. While sports participation is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged with 65 teams across 24 sports to choose from. Junior and Middle School students often try their hand at several different sports before discovering one or two to pursue in Senior School.

Athletics are considered an integral part of the School's program of education. While we advocate fitness for life, other long-lasting values are established through team sports; chief among them: self-confidence, discipline, grit, sportsmanship and integrity. Our athletic philosophy and curriculum provide experiences that will help students emotionally, mentally, socially and physically.

Our program develops in every athlete the necessary skills to be successful - not only in sports, but also in life.

"Our integrity guides us to act the way we do - and for all of our athletes, playing with integrity results in enriching the experience for themselves and others around them," says CDS Director of Athletics, John Andersen. "It is with integrity that we treat our teammates, respect our coaches and officials, and compete with our opposition."

  • CDS Track & Field Team Experienced Another Banner Year!

    Story by Denise Steadman, Geneva Winterink, Josh Collins & Sarah Parker, CDS Track Coaches
    This was another record-breaking year for The Country Day School’s Senior Track Team. The season started with the largest contingent ever with just over 50 athletes. While most trained and competed, there were a handful that joined the team just to improve their fitness.
    As a result of the unexpected ice storm in early April, training consisted of interval running with snowshoes. As coaches, we were so impressed by the dedication, positive attitude and work ethic of our athletes. We knew that this was going to be a good season.
