Regardless of a student’s abilities, everyone makes the team at WDS.
Children in fourth grade and up are eligible to participate in the after-school sports. Younger and older teams share the fields on and off campus and often participate in the same drills, which further enhances the end-to-end experience for the students.
The lower and middle school athletic program is a co-ed program for fourth through eighth grade.
Players get equal playing time, as well as an opportunity to move up to the upper school level to compete on a boys- or girls-only team.
The upper school soccer and basketball programs are separated for boys and girls to allow for competition with local schools. All other athletic teams in the upper school are co-ed. Sports are coached by teachers, parents and community members.
WDS associates with members of the Hudson Valley Athletic League (HVAL), and the Mid Hudson Christian School Athletic League (MHCSAL). Regular opponents include Oakwood Friends School, Poughkeepsie Day School, Wawarsing Christian, Marvelwood School, Faith Christian School, Darrow School, Kildonan School, Good Shepherd, Kingston Catholic, West Point Junior Black Knights, and New York Military Academy.
The goal of our interscholastic sports programs is to develop our athletes into team players who demonstrate excellent sportspersonship.
We inculcate in our students the understanding that an athlete who is a good sport, is someone whose conduct and attitude is gracious before, during, and after competition. Woodstock Day School fields teams in girls’ and boys’ soccer, basketball, cross country, volleyball, baseball and softball, tennis and co-ed Ultimate Frisbee.
WDS maintains practice facilities for short-sided soccer, and can train 5th-7th Grade teams in our gym. We use the excellent soccer facility at Cantine Recreation Complex in Saugerties for all of our soccer games, as well as ultimate frisbee; and the Donlon Gymnasium in Saugerties for all of our home basketball games.
