I view the opportunity to participate in athletics at any level as a privilege; a gift that should be valued and honored every minute of every practice, and every instant of every contest. The opportunity to identify the highest possible athletic challenge, and then to commit to it with a team of equally invested coaches and teammates offers an educational experience with no parallel. Competing with passion, courage, enthusiasm, and integrity are the hallmarks of a quality athletic program.
Cannon Athletics is not just about the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. We honor and celebrate the hours and hours of hard work that go into improving, that go into making ourselves better, making our teammates better, and making our teams better. We emphasize taking care of each other, competing together, playing the game the right way, and having fun!
Student-athletes at Cannon have the opportunity to play for coaches with coaching and playing experience at the highest level in their respective sports. Our coaches have won national championships at the Division I level, they have coached professional athletes, and they have coached and played on many state championship teams around the country. And, most significantly, they care deeply about the students at Cannon School.
A Cannon School education is special. The lessons, friendships, and experiences of Cannon Athletics make that education even more meaningful. We invite and encourage all students to join the ranks of the student-athlete! I, for one, am honored to serve at the Director of Athletics at Cannon School, and I look forward to seeing you all on the ball fields, courts, courses, and tracks!
