Philosophy

In most athletic programs, students participate because they excel. At the Willows, students excel because they have the chance to participate.

The Willows Academy athletic program is meant to give students the opportunity to have fun, to discover new talents and interests, to develop skills, to work together as teammates.

Our coaches stress skill mastery, teamwork and a love of the game, instead of flawless performance. Our staff’s mission is to provide supportive instruction and build self -confidence without the yelling that often happens in competitive sports.

When we don’t obsess about winning, our athletes relax, love coming to practice, build strong friendships, and play well.
