Competitive Sports Programs
Mountain View School has a long history of competing in cross country, volleyball, basketball, archery, badminton and track and field. Cross country, archery, badminton and track and field are individual sports with student placement on teams dependent largely on their age. When limited spaces are available, students will try out for the team placements. For the team sports of volleyball and basketball, the school will support a Junior Varsity (grade 7/8 and, when additional participants are needed, grade 6) and a varsity (grade 7/8/9) team for each sport. When necessary, placement on these teams will be determined through try outs. There may be occasions when only one team can be supported due to the limited number of students.
All extracurricular sports are run on volunteer hours. Great sacrifices of time are made by staff and parents to run the sports program and provide students with opportunities to compete. Parent support is essential to our sports programs and my include coaching, refereeing, transportation, organizing tournaments, fundraising etc. We also appreciate parents' support of the students as they compete in their respective sports. During try outs and team placements, we realize all parents want their child to have the best opportunity to compete and develop their talent. The administration and athletic director in consultation with coaches, ensure all students have opportunity to show case their skills and talent and then receive a fair team placement. We ask that parents keep this in mind as they approach each sport season and do their best to support the school in their decisions.
Coaches are expected to treat students with dignity and respect while fostering an environment conducive to maximizing all players potential. We recognize in the competitive sports arena, students have varying talents and abilities. All team members will participate in accordance with established divisional rules. Coaches will use their discretion to play team members in positions that will contribute both to the competitiveness of the team and also to building the potential of the player. Concerns regarding coaching should first be taken to the designated staff supervisor of the team.
