  • At FCDS, we believe that teaching extends beyond the classroom

    to the rink, the courts and playing fields
Instructional practices and training by our coaches, who are also teachers, strengthens relationships with students and serves to create a culture of camaraderie and support.

All of our older students participate in intramural and interscholastic sports as part of their school day and our athletics program and facilities offer opportunities for all boys, regardless of their ability or skill set.

Whether it’s the youngest boys learning to skate on the Worthington Johnson Rink, our oldest boys practicing free throws in the Foley Family Gymnasium, or our student-athletes competing in lacrosse and baseball games, our teaching coaches provide the type of professional instruction and expertise necessary to foster healthy competition. With this comes a proud tradition of success in developing confident student-athletes who go on to play at the highest levels in high school, college, and beyond.

  • Everyone Plays

    The strong commitment we have to making our athletic programs valuable and worthwhile is proudly emphasized by our tradition of mandatory participation. Athletics are considered an important factor in making the educational experience at FCDS well-rounded and complete. Since the coaches are teachers from the classroom, the extended relationships with the students serve to create a culture of comradeship and total support.
  • A Foundation for the Future

    Our goal is to provide a positive experience for the boys on the fields of competition, emphasizing team building and enjoyment of the game. Each boy from the novice to the advanced player has a place in our program. We aim to graduate students who have developed a healthy appreciation of sports, as a foundation for their entire lives.

Boys’ Institute for Growth

Sports can build confidence, connect boys to each other through action, and help them express emotions that they too often are not allowed to express in regular, daily life.
