At The Country Day School, we have a balanced approach to athletics. While sports participation is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged with 66 teams across 20 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."
