Westchester Middle School Athletics Program
The Middle School athletics program is designed to enhance students’ personal development and athletic abilities through the teaching of sound skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. The School boasts a variety of interscholastic and intramural teams and clubs, allowing students to excel in an area of their choice while representing the Windward community. Students of varying athletic abilities participate together on teams whose primary goals are to model and promote self-esteem, school spirit, fundamental skills, and love of the game. The coaches successfully incorporate many of the same teaching strategies used in the classroom to instruct our students on the field. All students are encouraged to participate in after school athletics through which they can enjoy competing with friends while building character and developing life skills.
Windward athletes compete against neighboring schools in the Fairchester League, a consortium of independent schools in Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, CT. In keeping with Windward’s philosophy, the league emphasizes fair play, teamwork, and participation over winning. Interscholastic sports offered at Windward include fall and spring cross-country, soccer, basketball, squash, lacrosse, and softball.
Intramural and instructional sports include volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, tennis, and fencing.
