UPDATE: Fall 2020: Keeping the health and safety of our school community as our highest priority, and considering the decisions of governing athletic bodies, TNCS will not begin its highest level of athletic participation, Interscholastic Athletics, in the fall. More information on our model to eventually return to Saber sports can be found here.
Following is information on the athletic program in a normal year.
The athletic program of The New Community School is designed to involve as many students as possible in a variety of interscholastic sports. To this end, it is both instructional as well as competitive. In each of the sports, coaches strive to develop fundamental skills using appropriate instructional techniques, in keeping with the philosophy of our academic and remedial programs. Athletic events are also community-building activities that can help build school spirit and involve many members of the school community.
In addition to improved individual skills, participants in the program should develop self-discipline, an understanding of teamwork, a sense of fair play, cooperation, sports etiquette and sportsmanship, and the concept of the intrinsic rewards of hard work. They develop pride in building an athletic tradition in a small, close-knit school.
Sports offered at TNCS typically include:
Fall: Boys: Soccer, Cross Country; Girls: Volleyball, Cross Country
Winter: Boys: Basketball; Girls: Basketball
Spring: Boys: Baseball, Track, Volleyball, Golf; Girls: Soccer, Track, Golf
Additionally: Students can participate in our year-round Strength, Speed, & Conditioning program.
