"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.
