Message from the Athletic Director

The Norfolk Academy Athletic Program is an integral part of the school’s overall educational experience. It contributes to the physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being of every student-athlete in a manner consistent with Norfolk Academy’s overall Philosophy and Objectives. Athletics is powerful because it can bridge gaps, bring people together who otherwise might not interact, and provide opportunities not available elsewhere.  The culture of Norfolk Academy Athletics enhances each student’s overall educational experience and character formation.

This fall, we plan to offer after-school opportunities for athletic participation, though they will look dramatically different from our normal routines.  We are scheduled to provide three training camps, starting Monday, September 21.  The fall sports will kick us off for the first three weeks, followed by the winter sports for two weeks, and then finishing up with our spring sports for three weeks.

Upon completion of these training camps, the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools (TCIS) is planning on starting the winter athletic practices on November 18.  The winter season will be followed by the fall season, which will begin on February 1. The spring season will follow on March 29. 

For more information see the September 2 letter to families.

Norfolk Academy’s teacher-coach model builds cohesion and continuity throughout our Middle and Upper Schools.

With classroom teachers coaching nearly all of our competitive athletic teams, students come to know and appreciate one another on multiple levels. Trust earned in the classroom continues to build on the field, and lessons learned on the court—about teamwork, about patience, about strategy and tactics—find applications back in the classroom.
