Athletics at Kalamazoo Country Day School

Athletics Program At Kalamazoo Country Day School we believe that the athletics program is an important component of a child’s complete educational experience. While our coaches strive to make our teams competitive, we recognize that the key objective is to help our student-athletes acquire important skills that will help them to be successful in their adult lives. At Country Day we focus on teaching our student-athletes how to win and not just on winning. Through positive reinforcement and demonstrating themselves as an exemplary role model, our coaches show our athletes how to succeed and display an image of gracious competitors who welcome challenge, win with humility, lose with dignity, advocate for their sport, and are positive role models.
