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. A skills sheet that explains how to master each level of training is used to simplify the process and make it objective.
Weekly scrimmages are held within the Academy structure in order to put into practice what players are learning. Local games are held with other competitive clubs to test skills in a competitive setting. For students interested in league competition, weekend games against local league teams are available. Seasonal tournaments also are scheduled through the U.S. Club Soccer Association and the USAAA Baseball Federation. 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.
