Winning with Humility and Integrity

Park's athletes field competitive teams and win their share of games, play-off victories, and championships in highly competitive leagues, the MIAA and IAAM. In 2013, the Girls' Lacrosse team won the B conference IAAM Championship against Friends School 15-12.

Facilities and Playing Fields

The 42,000 square foot athletic center contains three competition-length basketball courts, the Lyn P. Meyerhoff Fitness Center, visiting and home team locker rooms, and an outdoor swimming pool. Two additional basketball courts are located in the Blaustein wing of the main building. There are five playing fields on Park's main campus and four on the Sugar Campus.

Emphasizing Choice

In Upper School, students choose between participation in one of fifteen interscholastic athletics and physical education electives, including outdoor education, ultimate frisbee, climbing wall, yoga, and fitness and strength training.

Park Athletics Consistent with the Park School philosophy, character development is an essential component of our athletics program. Our physical education classes and interscholastic teams strive to teach basic skills, produce confident, conscientious, and ethical athletes, and encourage a lifetime model for fitness and health.

Our Program

Through sport, competition, and physical challenges students learn life lessons that differ from their classroom experiences. They learn to reconcile the independent thinking encouraged in their academic studies with the community goals set by coaches and teammates. What remains consistent however is the role of teachers and coaches in educating and guiding students through these lessons.

The Athletic Department provides opportunities for all athletes to reach their potential and compete in an environment where their experiences are positive and rewarding. The physical education program in all divisions offers a range of activities designed to develop fitness, agility, and game skills. Beginning in fourth grade, interscholastic teams learn game fundamentals and strategies, work on conditioning and fitness, and understand the importance of perseverance, fighting against odds, and winning with humility and integrity. We value both participation and competitive drive. Teams go into every game expecting to win and into every season expecting to be champions.
