Each athletic program and offering at Collegiate is designed to build on the previous program thus insuring a scaled approach that allows for synergy between programs, appropriate age based time commitments and emphasis, and a model that meets the needs of all student-athletes at every ability level.
K-4 Athletic Program and Offerings
Kindergarten through fourth-grade athletics are the first steps student-athletes take to become Amazons and Titans. The focus of these programs is to introduce and develop skills necessary to participate on an interscholastic team in the fifth through eighth-grade athletic program. Meeting once per week for fun, friends, and fundamental skill development for our K-4 athletes, sessions are taught in an atmosphere full of fun, excitement and energy allowing all student-athletes to work with friends and make new ones while learning and improving their skill base.
K-4 Athletic clubs will participate in healthy intra-squad competitions to enhance cooperation, teamwork, and the enjoyment of physical activity. These future Collegiate Varsity team members will receive sport specific instruction in coed groups during the week leaving weekends open. Some of the after school sports include Cross Country, Soccer, Field Hockey, Basketball, Track, and Lacrosse. Each after school sports group is part of exploreCollegiate programming so each session will last an hour from 3:30 p.m. -4:30 p.m. once or maybe twice each week.
5-8 Athletic Program and Offerings
The 5-8 athletics program expands on the foundation of skills established in grades K-4 by adding both tactical and strategic instruction. The 5-8 program also adds the team selection process whereby players are placed in developmentally appropriate teams for interscholastic competition.
5-8 teams compete against area schools during the week and on weekends and practice three or four days a week. 5-8 offerings are both single sex or coed depending on the offering.
Fall: Soccer (5-8), Cross Country (5-8), Field Hockey (5-8), Golf (6-8)
Winter: Basketball (5-8), Swimming (5-8)
Spring: Track (5-8), Tennis (5-8), and Lacrosse (5-8).
Winter/Spring: Crew (6-8) is a varsity sport which allows Middle School participation and thus will require a larger time commitment
9-12 Athletic Program and Offerings
The Upper School athletics program is the culminating point of an academic institution’s athletic offerings. Most students have developed basic skills in their respective sports and Upper School athletics become much more competitive. Depending on the number of participants, some sports have Junior Varsity programs for those students not quite ready for the competitive Varsity program. Team placements occur at the beginning of seasons as coaches help determine placement for an individual student.
Our Upper School athletic teams compete against area schools during the week and on weekends and they practice usually four or five times per week. Therefore, the time commitment to participate in Upper School athletics is much greater. Both single-sex and coed sports are offered depending on the sport.
Fall: Soccer, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Golf
Winter: Basketball, Swimming, Indoor Track, Crew
Spring: Crew, Track, Lacrosse, Tennis
