The Athletics Program is committed to providing each student with a strong and positive foundation in the experience of team sports and physical activity. Students participate as a member of a team that will practice and play as a community, emphasizing teamwork and camaraderie, and always striving for fair play.
Students also receive individual attention in each sport to facilitate skill building and self-confidence. The BHMS Mustangs play regularly scheduled soccer and basketball games, and participate in track meets, all within the larger community of independent schools. At the end of each season, we honor the student-athletes in a special assembly.
Athletics includes all Mustangs team sports at BHMS. Our belief is that competitive team sports are a vital part of child development. Student-Athletes must balance the roles of being both a student and an athlete, while understanding that academics takes priority over athletics. In order to participate in athletics, students must stay on top of their assignments and projects.
Our program is inclusive; anyone that wants to be a part of a team can join--provided that they can commit to the rigorous practice schedule and work hard.
Students are supported in an environment that is safe and fun. Goal setting and reflection are fundamental elements in our program. Through athletics, students not only develop sport-specific skills, but they also develop:
- Perseverance-mental toughness
- Positive Social Skills: being a supportive teammate, being courteous to the other team/referees
In addition to character building, the coaches teach the basic skills and strategies of team play, as well as train the Mustangs to build strength, endurance, and coordination. The coaching staff works tirelessly to instill the concepts of teamwork, good sportsmanship, and most importantly, winning and losing gracefully.
