Panther Athletics

Coaching at The Piedmont School has been a unique experience. What makes the sports program so special, is that every athlete is given the opportunity to learn and participate in sports differently from traditional practices. Each athlete has a unique skill set and hidden talents that are ready to be reveled on the fields and courts. Success is not measured on the amount of wins and losses but through the personal goals and accomplishments achieved by a team or individual. I really believe that learning from ones mistakes is worth more value than winning a game. Through the practice of sportsmanship, athletes develop quality skills such as teamwork, respect, responsibility and leadership. What I love most is that are athletes are not just numbers and positions but friends and family who are working together to accomplish more than the score.

Students in 5th-8th grade are invited to participate in the following sports

  • Cross Country (early fall),
  • Flag Football (mid-fall),
  • Volleyball (winter),
  • Basketball (late winter) and
  • Soccer (spring)

Every team is try-out free, co-educational and open to students of all skill levels.

The athletic program provides a unique opportunity to teach student-athletes more than just how to win and lose. The mission is to teach students how to win with honor and at the same time be gracious in defeat while promoting respect for opponents and teammates.

Our program encourages teamwork and a willingness to sacrifice and work hard with others towards a common goal. We strongly believe that academics come first and all students must adhere to the code of conduct in order to have the privilege to part of the teams.

Here at The Piedmont School we try our best to communicate all practice and game schedules through our Remind text system and our Facebook page. The best way to stay on top of sports practice and game schedules is through the school's Team Cowboy account. This account and system is regularly updated by Coach M and is the fastest way to find schedules. If your child signs up for sports, please be sure you join this account (it is free). You can find information for joining our account in the Current Parents section of our website.
