|Interscholastic athletics are an essential part of the Ross educational program in which students are provided with challenges that inspire them to levels of achievement far past their perceived limits. Students are required to participate in at least one team sport while at Ross, though many choose to participate and develop their athletic skills beyond that requirement. Ross partners with other local schools for some sports. Ross teams have enjoyed several recent successes, notably a championship in tennis and top league records in soccer and baseball. In addition to athletic skill development, our coaches are responsible for teaching our student-athletes proper attitudes toward citizenship, sportsmanship, and cooperation, as well as for developing self-discipline and positive self-esteem. We hope that through participation in interscholastic sports, student-athletes will build a positive self-image and will be provided a challenge that inspires students to excel beyond their perceived limits. |
