More than Just Sports
It has been an ongoing tradition and philosophy of the Willows Academy Athletic Department that participation in athletics is an integral part of the education process. Willows Academy encourages all students to participate in athletics and has a no-cut policy. The Athletic Department offers competition at the interscholastic level for both middle school and high school in a variety of sports.
Student-athletes will have the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their maximum potential in a well-coached environment. Each student-athlete takes pride in representing and building their team, school traditions, and athletic achievements. The Athletic Department is committed to the physical, spiritual, intellectual and social growth of each student-athlete.
While learning fair play, teamwork and sportsmanship, student-athletes must be challenged at the level or skill they bring to the sport. Participation in athletics can teach educational values such as discipline, dedication, desire, courage, dignity, sacrifice, competition, responsibility, leadership and pride. The true value of Willows athletes rests in learning of these life-long lessons.
The success of our athletic teams are a direct result of the following: dedication of our coaches, cooperation from school administration, faculty and staff, the support of our parents, and the commitment, skill and participation of our student-athletes. The Athletic Department must be flexible and reflect the Willows Academy’s vision, mission, values and culture in order to address the needs and interests of its entire student population.
