THE MARINER WAY
Our athletic program functions as an integral part of the total curriculum. We strive for the development of well-rounded individuals, capable of taking their place in a competitive society. We believe that sports offer an environment for children to grow, not just athletically, but also socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Our athletic programs operate within the framework of The Mariner Way – a philosophy centered on resiliency, effort, and pride. Every practice, every game, every team trip, every workout – we do things The Mariner Way.
“At Rocky Hill Country Day, effort doesn’t just mean being there and putting in the bare minimum. Effort means being present mentally and physically and doing everything you can until you can’t. Effort is shown through my will to never stop, the countless miles I put in everyday, and the smiles on my family’s faces when I play.”
“I feel proud to wear a Rocky Hill Country Day School sports jersey because of what it means to be a Mariner. I’m proud of the effort we put in every day. I’m also proud because I get to represent the School and be a part of our winning programs.”
“Resiliency means fighting through adversity. From leading my team to a comeback victory in our lacrosse championship game, to keeping my head high after a tough basketball end of season loss, I get to practice resiliency everyday. Playing sports at Rocky Hill Country Day has made me a more determined and persistent athlete.”
