ATHLETICS AT MEAD
Team Sports - Grades 3-8
The benefits of participation in team sports go well beyond the physical. Students develop confidence the more they learn about themselves and their abilities. Team sports foster leadership skills, respect for authority and rules, sportsmanship, resilience, and camaraderie among teammates, allowing them to nurture stronger friendships. For all of the above reasons, Mead strongly encourages students to participate in team sports.
