Welcome to TGS Athletics
Dear Students, Parents, and/or Guardians,
It is with great pride and privilege that I welcome you to The Gilbert School Athletic Program. We are dedicated to creating multiple opportunities through competitive athletics to complement the physical, cognitive, and social growth and development of our young men and women.
The Gilbert School is extremely proud of the success of its many programs both on and off the field. The purpose of the program is to ensure a positive experience for those students who choose to participate. It is also a goal to provide all student-athletes with an opportunity to learn the importance of effective communication, teamwork, ethical behavior, good sportsmanship, commitment, and problem-solving, amongst other things.
We acknowledge that participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege (not a right) that enriches and enhances the lives of student-athletes, their families, and the community. We also stress to our student-athletes that academics come first. That being said, we expect that our student-athletes can maintain balance regarding their academic and athletic responsibilities at TGS. We view our coaches as teachers and our playing field as an extension of the classroom. This handbook serves to provide information to help make our athletic program efficient and effective.
If you ever have questions or concerns regarding your interscholastic experience I encourage you to speak with the coaching staff and myself. My door is always open. I highly encourage you to take full advantage of the interscholastic opportunities offered here at The Gilbert School.
