The philosophy and missions of The Williams School athletic program is to provide our middle school students the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle by participating in a variety of team sports. All students who wish to participate are encouraged and able to do so regardless of skill level. A tenant of our program is "Everybody Plays." This applies to practices and games but does not necessarily apply to the concept of equal time. The amount of time a team member plays is at the discretion of the coach. Positive characteristics of team sports such as cooperation, respect, acceptance of individual abilities, trust, and fair play are encouraged by our parents, coaches, administrators, and staff. Our philosophy and mission allow our students to pursue and extend lasting friendships from the classroom to the playing field. In order for students to have a positive athletic experience, we provide individualized team instruction in concert with the academic mission of the school.
