Middle School Athletics

MS Lacrosse Team

Athletics are an integral part of the curriculum at SSFS. Through participation in the athletic program, students will develop good habits in health and physical conditioning and gain an awareness of their physical capabilities. Students will also experience and deal with competition in a positive and constructive manner, develop self-discipline, and learn and practice good sportsmanship.

At the middle school level, coaches try to accommodate students with a wide range of experience and skills. Students new to a sport are given an introduction to the sport and its rules, and all players will develop individual skills and learn basic team principles. Playing time is determined by a combination of skill, skill improvement, attitude, and attendance. If students meet the requirements of attitude and attendance, they are guaranteed to play in every regular season game in which they dress. Occasionally, participation on a team is very high, and students will participate in games on a rotating basis to allow all players dressed for a game to play. During playoffs, playing time is more competitive and dependent on skill as well as attitude and attendance.
