ATHLETICS

Capital Day School’s philosophy of educating the whole child applies to extracurricular athletics as well as school academics. Athletics provides a chance for students to experience physical and social growth and to learn to be responsible. It also allows teamwork and sportsmanship to be incorporated into the students’ learning environment. Students must pass a physical exam before participating in any athletic activity. All interested and eligible students get playing time on athletic teams.
CDS strives for the holistic academic, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of its students. Unlike other sports, both track and field provides a unique opportunity for largely individual performance challenges in a team setting.
The program at CDS is intended to challenge the student physically and mentally and to develop within the student physical and mental toughness, self-confidence, and leadership.

BASKETBALL

 

Capital Day School offers students the opportunity to play on school basketball teams.  The season usually begins in September and continues through early winter. 

 

Teams are determined by the number of students. Typically, there is one team for girls in fifth through eighth grades, a team for fifth and sixth grade boys, and a team for seventh and eighth grade boys.

TRACK

 

Track is held in the spring. There are separate boys and girls teams for students in grades one through eight. Parents must accompany their children and remain during practices and meets.

 

Students who participate in track and field are challenged to improve not only their endurance and athleticism, but also their ability to focus and sustain concentration. These programs are intended to provide an opportunity for students to accomplish new tasks and to challenge themselves and each other to improve their athletic performance, regardless of skill and performance level. We try to accomplish this via conditioning and learning of new skills in a supportive and fun environment that includes student athletes, coaches, and parents.

CROSS COUNTRY

 

Students who participate in cross country are challenged to improve not only their endurance and athleticism, but also their ability to focus and sustain concentration.

ARCHERY

 

Offered to fourth grade through eighth grade students, Archery as a sport teaches coordination, strength, patience and focus. The Capital Day School team competes locally under the National Archery in the Schools Program. (NASP)

GOLF

 

Boys and girls in grades one through eight may participate in organized golf in the fall, spring, and summer. The purpose of the CDS golf program is to learn golf, have fun, and stay safe with golf clubs. Students in grades four and below are asked to have a parent or other responsible adult accompany them at golf practice.
