Athletics

Setting, achieving, and surpassing

Through athletics students learn valuable lessons in perseverance, accountability, collaboration, and leadership.

Upper School Philosophy.

Student athletes are given a platform to maximize their individual abilities, while simultaneously helping Wellington win championships. The program values inclusion of the student body and is committed to finding a place for all student athletes at either the junior varsity or varsity level. Playing time is not guaranteed at the varsity level. Responsibility, time management skills, and leadership development are expected by-products of participation at this level.

Middle School Philosophy.

Skill development and a balance between participation and increased competition are the primary focus of middle school athletics. The goal is for each student to receive some playing time during each contest and all Wellington students are encouraged to join our athletic teams. Coaches and athletes work to create an inclusive and energetic team environment, while thoroughly preparing for the transition to upper school athletics.

Lower School Philosophy.

Throughout the school year we offer a variety of camps and clinics through our Junior Jags program. These opportunities reflect a variety of sports which are provided in our Middle and Upper School athletic programs. Junior Jag camps and clinics are often instructed by our Varsity Coaches, with the support of our Upper School students. This is a fun way to build community between young, aspiring athletes and our experienced Varsity student-athletes.

We are currently determining our 2021-2022 offerings based on the health and safety of our community and staff availability. More information is coming soon.
