Confident. Strong. Healthy.
On the field and in the gym, students at The Davis Academy share in the camaraderie of playing on a team and are encouraged to make fitness a part of their healthy lifestyle.
The overall goal of the Physical Education Program is to get Davis students in the habit of exercising and to introduce creative and fun ways to get the daily exercise that they need. In the Lower School, the program concentrates on the building blocks of movement concepts, spatial awareness and rhythm, which can be brought to life through unique obstacle course activities, team relay races or fun, interactive “dance off” programming. In the Middle School, there is a shift to individual, team and recreational sports.
All students participate in physical education three times per week. They develop skills and confidence, maintain physical fitness, and learn about personal health and wellness, while demonstrating individual growth and teamwork. Throughout the elementary years, students develop gross motor skills and experience a variety of sports and games while learning about the benefits of staying active. Sportsmanship and doing one’s best, regardless of skill level, are vital components of our overall athletics program at every age level.
The Developmental Sports Program gives Lower School students (1st - 5th grades) the opportunity to learn new activities, sharpen their skills and learn sportsmanship in a fun and safe environment. The program is offered after school and is intended to be fun as well as educational.
Offerings may include soccer, rock climbing, basketball, jump rope and track/field.
