The Sherman School is committed to the whole of each child, including athletics. Participation in sports, whether at the interscholastic level or at the intramural level, offers our students the opportunity to learn the game, to practice the game, and to play the game.
In interscholastic competition, our students are uniquely privileged - they represent the Sherman School on the fields, the courts, the diamonds. At either level, interscholastic or intramural, students are expected to play their best - winning being nothing more than playing to win. Our expectations of our students are no less in academics.
For the Sherman School teams to compete with other school teams - for them to play their best as teams - it follows that they be composed of the best players. It is for this reason that tryouts exist. Simply, in interscholastic competition, players compete to make the team. To encourage the fullest athletic participation - to enable all Sherman School middle school students to play sports as members of teams, efforts will be made to offer intramural programs throughout the school year.
