Wildwood Athletics Mission Statement: Wildwood’s athletic program embodies the mission of the K-12 school in developing engaged community members who are working to be their best selves. As an extension of the Wildwood classroom, the lessons learned reinforce the values of commitment, hard work, gratitude, and grit. With a primary focus on growth and character development, Wildwood Wolves are taught to compete at the highest levels, to strive for success, and strategize to win.
Upper School Athletics
The upper school program offers both junior varsity and varsity teams. Student-athletes try out for a team and earn a position based on skill sets, understanding of a sport, and demonstrated commitment. Athletes are taught to manage their time and take care of their health as they experience a rigorous practice and competition schedule. The focus is on helping student-athletes to realize that success is achieved through hard work, collaboration, and being their best selves. Teams compete in the CIF sanctioned Coastal League.
Middle School Athletics
The middle school program offers different levels of competitive teams and more variety of choice. Some sports have limited roster sizes and thus tryouts and team placement. Athletes are assessed at the beginning of the season, then placed at the appropriate level based on skill and understanding of the sport. Wildwood ensures there is at least one sport offered per season where a middle school athlete can participate. Our program offers the opportunity for student-athletes to develop skills as well as enjoy the excitement of competition, thus preparing them for athletics at the upper school level. Teams compete in the Pacific Basin League where equal playing time is not mandated, and our teams strategize to compete at their highest level.
Elementary School Athletics
The Wildwood elementary school program is an introduction to competitive athletics for 5th graders. The focus is on reinforcing Life Skills, understanding the importance of sportsmanship, and experiencing healthy competition. Wildwood offers a place on the team for anyone who signs up. The experience at the elementary level prepares students for involvement in athletics at Wildwood’s middle and upper school. Teams compete in the Coastal Canyon League where equal playing time is mandated.
