We believe in the benefits of the multi-sport athlete, while at the same time providing support for the student in his core sport. Students electing not to participate on a competitive team are provided other noncompetitive opportunities to develop their physical skills in the pursuit of a well-rounded education in mind, body, and spirit.
We are committed teaching the value of hard work, ethical conduct, sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork through dedication to the teacher–coach model. We recognize that a healthy athletic environment is inclusive, that every team member is equally important, and that the athletic experience should be fun for all participants, coaches, and spectators.
Cardigan Mountain School believes sportsmanship is an essential component for the success of interscholastic athletics. Student-athletes, coaches, officials, and fans demonstrate sportsmanship by following the Cardigan core values of compassion, integrity, respect, and courage. We encourage all participants to enthusiastically support their team, recognize outstanding performance of opponents, and always exhibit good sportsmanship in their words and actions.
One of things we know is that middle school boys need to be active, so part of their education is athletic education. A lot of the boys come with a sport of hockey or lacrosse or skiing that they feel is an important part of their identity. We want to honor that, and we want to do it the right way.
