The Bush athletic program provides opportunities for continued physical, social, and personal development in a challenging, supportive, and fun environment.
Athletics plays an essential role in The Bush School community, whether students are active participants or general supporters of the program. Dedicated coaches, most of whom are faculty members, make the athletic experience a time of learning and growth for all athletes. The coaching staff emphasizes fundamental technical, tactical, and emotional skills needed to succeed in interscholastic play while reinforcing positive values and social competencies such as sportsmanship, teamwork, perseverance, time-management, and ethical judgment. Participants are able to apply the outcome of these invaluable life lessons on and off the playing fields; during their time at Bush and beyond.
Bush Athletics includes opportunities for students in grades one through twelve. Approximately 70 percent of students in these grade levels participate in the athletic program. Bush follows a no-cut philosophy, which allows any student who demonstrates interest and shows commitment to be placed on a team. Athletes at The Bush School are asked to work hard, to be committed to their teams, and most importantly to have fun.
