Welcome to Middle Division Athletics
Physical Education and After-School Sports
Lower and Middle Division Athletics is divided into two programs that support each other year-round: Physical Education and After-School Sports. With emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect, both programs promote health, fitness, socialization, and a positive self-image for all participants. Students engage in group activities structured according to age and ability.
In addition to our spacious playgrounds and blacktop areas, the Athletics Program is supported with a state-of-the-art turf field.
The guiding principle of the program over the years has been ‘Play, Learn, and Win’.
Play: Students are encouraged to play the sports they like and try out new ones. Stevenson students are encouraged to play as many sports as they can regardless of experience or ability.
Learn: As competitive as middle school sports can become, the major emphasis is on learning. A significant accomplishment for the program is to introduce students to a new sport, have them enjoy the new experience so much they want to continue playing after their time on the Carmel Campus. Similarly, the program benefits when experienced athletes learn how to win and play in a variety of environments.
Win: While not the first objective, winning is an important objective. Winning takes on many forms. Scores and records are documented, but a win can be more than just the final score. Winning is about finding success, learning from failure, and maintaining a positive approach throughout the process.
