Our Athletic Program is designed with excellence in mind, which means playing sports and practicing good sportsmanship. We want our students to participate, so instead of try-outs and cuts, we focus on helping students increase their skills and ability. If you want to try a new sport, you’re on the team. If you commit to the sport, you’ll make a difference.
My son ramped up his soccer skills at York because he had so much playing time, even in his freshman year. York’s program builds ability, self confidence, and a spirit of sportsmanship. – Mike Galloway (Parent of Ryan '14, Claire '17, and Matt '20)The main goal of York athletics is to be active in something you enjoy. Some students team up, while others prefer to participate in Health & Fitness activities like fencing, strength training, yoga, walking, running, or dance, plus more. If your favorite activity occurs off campus – martial arts, equestrian events, ballet, club sports – you can arrange for Independent Activity. Strength in mind and body is part of the York culture and commitment to excellence. Brains work better when muscles get a workout too.
