Known as the Cougars, Cardigan athletic teams foster sportsmanship, teamwork, and School pride. Cardigan fields 42 teams in 16 sports to meet the interests and develop the abilities of all our student-athletes. Every boy has the opportunity to play, learn, and have fun.

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 may also elect not to participate on a competitive team and can choose from other noncompetitive opportunities to develop their physical skills in the pursuit of a well-rounded education in mind, body, and spirit.

Our coaches teach the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play, and hard work. We recognize that a healthy athletic environment is inclusive, that every member of a team is equally important, and that the athletic experience should be fun for all players, coaches, and spectators.

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.

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.
