The Athletics Department is proud of the unique approach we take to introducing competitive sports to our students. It is something we do with care, attention to skill development and sportsmanship, and a keen focus on helping children learn how to compete within a culture of camaraderie. We believe that both winning and losing impart important lessons and we strive to use these as teaching opportunities.
Our program is designed to ensure that every child gets involved in interscholastic competition. Teams are organized by skill level to give every student a chance to play, grow as an athlete, and improve his or her physical and social skills.
Curtis School is a part of the San Fernando Valley Private School League (SFVPSL), which is comprised of forty-two independent schools. Students in grades 4 through 6 compete against local SFVPSL schools in three athletic seasons over the course of a year.
Students in grades 4 through 6 learn and practice athletic skills and teamwork during P.E. class time. Games are scheduled for after-school hours and are played both "at home" and "away." Game days are exciting for the athletes, and they appreciate the support of our Curtis families, faculty, and student body, who show up to cheer on the teams.
All the Curtis coaches are committed to making sure that the children are prepared for the transition from Lower Elementary physical education to the Athletics program, and we strive to make this experience for 3rd graders an exciting and positive one.
Over the years, we have found that students graduate from Curtis with a love of sports, compassion for their teammates and opponents, and an appreciation for the importance of discipline in athletics. The coaches take great pride in sharing these life skills with the children. We look forward to carrying forward these Curtis traditions during the 2018-2019 school year.
See you at the games!
