The Labyrinth Athletic Program
The Labyrinth Program is the Montessori School’s interscholastic sports program. The teams play soccer, basketball, and participate in cross country and 5k. We aim to schedule games with other schools that share our philosophical approach to sports and against whom we are evenly matched. The older students play in the Fairchester Athletic League for soccer, basketball and cross-country.
How to join the Labyrinth
There are no tryouts. Every Third Year Lower Elementary Student through Middle Schooler is encouraged to come out join our athletic program. We give every player the opportunity to improve and gain experience in the world of athletics. We practice and play after school several days a week. We encourage full and consistent participation because that is better for both the individual player and the team. On the other hand, we recognize that there are legitimate reasons for absence so players will not be penalized for missing a game or practice.
Develop sportsmanship - to respect your own teammates, the other team and the referee.
Have fun playing with friends and classmates
Learn to work together as a team
Challenge yourself against worthy competition
Build school spirit
Win gracefully and lose gracefully. It is usually more fun to win and we like to win but the young athlete learns different life lessons by experiencing both. In any event, winning is a lower priority than any of the preceding values.
Reminders for parents at games
- Be encouraging. Your presence alone communicates that clearly.
- Let the coach give instructions to the players during the game. When others shout instructions to players during the game, it is confusing.
- Model good sportsmanship for your child and the community.
- Appreciate the other team and the officials. Without their participation, there is no game.
Please read the list of priorities above. These are the values we are living with our student-athletes. We ask you to support them.
