|Cannon School is fielding a varsity football team comprised of students in grades 9-12, the final step in a three year plan to build a program that includes middle school and junior varsity teams. The School decided to add football to its flourishing athletics program after several years of research and conversations both within its school community and with schools offering established and relatively new football programs.
In preparation for the 2010-2011 school year, Cannon has enhanced one of the School’s athletic fields, adding new goal posts, an electronic scoreboard and bleachers. Beginning this season, Cannon is hosting football games under stadium lights built over the summer.
Cannon School is an independent Junior Kindergarten-Grade 12 college preparatory institution. It is the Charlotte area’s fourth-largest independent school and attracts students from Concord, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mooresville, the University City area of Charlotte, Kannapolis, and Salisbury. Cannon School instills academic excellence and personal responsibility, inspires athletic and artistic accomplishment, and promotes a respect for diversity within a challenging and safe educational environment.
