Physical Education and Athletics are different at Waterford. It is our goal to intentionally remove unnecessary distractions from our athletes learning. While the rest of the athletic communities, professional and amateur, continue to expand the hype and fluff that surround their programs, Waterford has chosen a different path.

Too often athletics is thought of as separate from a student’s academic experience. At Waterford, athletics is recognized as a commitment that offers unique learning experiences and, as such, plays a complementary role to a student’s intellectual growth. The lasting success of Waterford athletics is best measured by the kind of person, not just the kind of athlete that it produces. The coaches at Waterford guide the process by which they teach students to think critically and analyze intelligently using skills that are as useful on the field as they are in the laboratory. Waterford’s main goal is to produce athletes who will be successful both on and off the field, athletes who understand that the lessons that they learned about the pursuit of excellence are applicable even after the final whistle.
