Athletics at WCDS

Building a strong mind and a strong body go hand in hand. Children are introduced to our physical education program in nursery-3 and from kindergarten on have this class at least three times a week. Developing motor skills, cooperative games, a life-long appreciation for fitness, and having fun are the main components of our program.

As the students get older, more advanced skills for individual sports are introduced and when a student enters the fifth grade they are able to compete on an interscholastic level. In the fall there is field hockey and soccer, basketball for both boys and girls during the winter months, and lacrosse and softball in the spring.

Our policy is that whoever wants to try out for a team will earn a spot, whether it is on the varsity or junior varsity. We feel that a team sport at this level should be a rewarding and fun experience with the emphasis on being a team member and sportsmanship.

At Woodland there are two teams, the Whites and the Blues, and throughout the year competitions go on between them. These are not just athletic events, but spelling bees, collecting box tops and other zany events, which allow a student to earn points for his or her team. The end of the year culmination is on Field Day when the two teams compete to see who the overall winner will be. This is always a fun day as the spectators cheer on the teams especially during the last event the tug of war.
