In lieu of interscholastic teams, the Lower School sponsors a sports training program open to our students and students in the community. The intention of Westminster’s Sports Academy is to provide club-level training in a safe and convenient environment without interrupting family time or traveling out of town. Sports academies meet for practice and most games after school on our campus.
In the Westminster sports academies, each player is regularly evaluated and given personal feedback on progress and areas to improve. Skills are learned through instruction of proper technique and supervised application. Using repetitive drills, as well as creative and fun technical training, players learn the proper skill for each sport.
For the 2016-2017 year, we are not partnering with the YMCA as we have in years past, however we will have after-school clinics that can be used as part of the “team practice” if Westminster parents are sponsoring their own YMCA team. For information regarding what clinics will be offered, stay tuned to this webpage or contact the corresponding sport’s varsity coach directly to inquire about a specific Lower School academy.
Part of the fun in playing at this age is competing with friends and learning to be a teammate. The academies provide a great context to see these goals come to fruition. Westminster’s Sports Academy offers a unique environment for growing young men and women of Christian character in addition to outstanding performance.
