Lower School & Middle School Athletics:
“Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole man, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator.” – Pope Pius XII
At Alverno Heights Acadmey, teamwork, cooperation, and attitude are equally, if not more, important than the students’ understanding of the skills and activities themselves. Our Middle School athletics program is exciting and rigorous and provides students with a healthy amount of competition. Beginning in fifth grade, students can participate in organized sports teams. Students learn the foundations of physical activity and wellness — both physical and mental.
