Fostering teamwork, sportsmanship, integrity, athletic skill and responsibility are hallmarks of the Cougar Athletic program.
The Quarry Lane School recognizes the importance of athletics as an integral component of a student’s complete educational development and we encourage our students to participate in some form of interscholastic athletics during the course of their Upper School experience.
All participants and teams will represent the school and community in a positive manner and will reflect the dedication and hard work that will be required to compete and be successful. Success will not be measured by records that are achieved by teams or individuals, but rather by the knowledge that each participant gave his/her best effort and prepared for each contest to the best of his/her ability. Quarry Lane School realizes and understands that an effective interscholastic athletic program is the product of responsible cooperation between its four major components: the Student-Athlete, the parents, the coaching staff, and the administration.
The Quarry Lane School Athletic Program, open to all interested students, has as its goal to develop and refine individual athletic skills, to teach and reinforce the concepts of teamwork and to strive to achieve a better understanding of the sport. It is vital that all team members exhibit good sportsmanship, cooperation and a true understanding of individual differences at all times. Although we strive to win the true goal is learning and playing together.
The Quarry Lane School Athletic Programs has its main objectives the following:
- To develop and enhance, in every student, sportsmanship, collaborative skills to be utilized in a group setting, courtesy, and self-control.
