CFS Athetics Brochure 2015



Welcome from the Director of Athletics

Athletics are an integral part of the Church Farm School curriculum, with benefits that are both immediate and enduring. Our outstanding coaching staff, consisting primarily of academic and residential faculty, serve as teachers and mentors for our boys, working closely with our student-athletes to pursue excellence while developing leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork and an appreciation for lifelong fitness. Through a new partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance, our athletic staff and school leaders will be participating in workshops focused on reinforcing these skills among our student body—both on the field, and off.

Since athletic participation is a required part of the CFS experience, we provide a diverse selection of competitive, developmental and recreational options. Whether a student is a varsity-level athlete or a beginner, we offer programs that are both challenging and rewarding. CFS fields multiple levels of competitive teams in soccer, golf, cross country, wrestling, basketball, winter track, baseball, tennis, lacrosse and track and field, as well as non-competitive options such as intramural sports and strength and conditioning. We have four soccer fields, six tennis courts, a running track, a basketball gym and a multi-purpose field house used for wrestling, basketball and much more.

We are extremely proud of our championship-caliber teams who have accomplished so much in such a short time—five BAL championships in the past two years and six district championships since joining PIAA in 2009. Even more impressive is that our boys have achieved this athletic success on top of a very rigorous academic workload and with the highest level of sportsmanship. Go Griffins!
