Greenhill Athletics strives to provide opportunities to all interested Upper School students to become well-rounded student-athletes. We pride ourselves in providing the best learning and competitive situations for each of our participants.
To this end, we seek to include all interested participants at an appropriate level of competition, and we are committed to the following goals: teach the value of competition; develop athletic skills; encourage commitment to a team and a season-long process; teach the value of teamwork; learn from both positive and negative situations; develop leadership, judgment, and character; develop sportsmanship and ethical conduct in the context of fair play; and develop a strong work ethic.
Being a part of the athletic program and a team is a privilege and a commitment to hard work, self-discipline, dedication, and relentless effort. In earning a place on an athletic team at Greenhill, the student-athlete accepts the following responsibilities: be a worthy representative of the team and the school at all times; maintain a high-level of fitness and health; be a positive contributor in practices and games regardless of playing time; be responsible for personal and teammates; safety at all times; be a model of good sportsmanship; learn to balance time commitments between schoolwork, school commitments, and athletics in a constructive manner; commit to fully participate in the entire season of practices and games; and be responsible for communication with coaches and staff when emergencies conflict with athletic responsibilities.
All Greenhill interscholastic athletic teams should strive to compete at the highest level possible. Competition is an important component in the pursuit of excellence. However, coaches, players, administrators, and parents should keep in mind that the overall mission of our interscholastic athletics program is to model and develop strong character, commitment, responsibility, and humility.
