WINTER SPORTS 2016-17

WINTER ATHLETICS WRAP-UP

There were many athletic programs running between 3 and 4pm this winter season, supported by a lot of teachers and staff. Since the weather brought us more rain than snow this year, our fitness group spent more time running than snowshoeing. They also did a lot of strength training; thank you to Mr. Morrisohn and Mr. Hardy for having the School History Room ready for fitness every day! Thanks to Mrs. Schroh and Liz Manko for offering a yoga class to a small group. Our racquets coach, Ms. Tillsley, ran a fantastic program in squash, while our court tennis athletes had a great time learning to play with Josh and Tim from the Tuxedo Club. Lastly, thanks to all of the basketball coaches, Mr. Fontana, Ms. O’Connor, Ms. Rossano, and Mr. Tsilibes, who persevered through a long season of canceled and rescheduled games but made the most of every practice. The following athletes were recognized for their outstanding efforts at the winter sports assembly; congratulations to all of the award recipients!

"I DON'T KNOW ANY OTHER SCHOOL OR ATHLETIC PROGRAM WHERE YOU FEEL SO MUCH LIKE FAMILY. I THINK WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THE TPS SPORTS PROGRAM IS THAT THE COACHES TAKE ALL DIFFERENT LEVELS OF PLAYERS, WITH ALL DIFFERENT LEVELS OF KNOWLEDGE, AND MAKE THEM INTO A TEAM WHO COMMUNICATE AND PLAY TO OUR FULLEST POTENTIAL." - RACHEL P. '16, Freshman Class of 2017


Athletics at Tuxedo Park School

All students from Pre-K through Grade 6 participate in a physical education program that promotes fitness, motor skill development, sportsmanship, and cooperation. Developing an appreciation and need for a physically active lifestyle is paramount. 
 
All students in Grades 6-9 play on a competitive interscholastic athletic team. They learn the skills of teamwork and the important values of self-discipline, tenacity, responsibility, and sportsmanship. The goal of the program is to have every child be an active and responsible member of the teams and to represent Tuxedo Park School in a proud and respectful way.
 
Fall sports are coed tennis, soccer for the boys, volleyball for the girls, and field hockey for the girls. The winter sport is basketball for both boys and girls. Some students may choose not to play basketball and participate in squash, court tennis or join a conditioning class. Also during the winter, all the students participate in a five-week ski program on Thursday afternoons. In the spring, the sports include coed track and field, lacrosse for boys, and lacrosse for girls.

Teamwork is an important component of the program. Students learn to work together, respect each other’s differences, and help each other to succeed. The program is unique in the student’s education since four grades - sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth - practice together and interact across grade levels.
