EXERCISE THE BODY & THE MIND.
EXPERT COACHING & QUALITY COMPETITION.
Sports at Forman are for the seasoned athlete, the newcomer, and everyone in between. Sports are integral to the Forman experience and provide discipline, confidence, collaboration, and achievement that is evident both on the field and in the classroom. Our program promotes character development and Forman athletes develop leadership skills and self-confidence that inspire them to lead successful lives.
Welcome from the Athletic Director
Since its founding in 1930, Forman School has emphasized the value of maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Besides the physical benefits that athletics provides, there is scientific proof that shows that regular exercise has a measurable impact on increased brain functionality.
At Forman, sports are an arena for learning about teamwork, leadership, and the importance of working together toward a common goal. We value sports because they teach about winning and losing and how to do both gracefully. We also value sports for the sheer joy of playing them!
Required involvement in a competitive team or recreational sport works in conjunction with academic achievement and social well being to create a well-rounded individual. Since many of the coaches are also classroom teachers, our students benefit from the added dimension in their relationships. This balance of academic, social, and athletic pursuits is what makes the Forman student complete.
Each year, Forman students may choose from 24 competitive and non-competitive sports—both single-gender and coed. Students enjoy the thrill of competition at a level that’s best suited to their abilities. There are also many opportunities to try something new.
Forman School belongs to the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) and participates in the Western New England Preparatory School Athletic Association (WNEPSAA) and the Housatonic Valley Athletic League (HVAL). All Forman coaches are certified by the Positive Coaching Alliance, a national organization that promotes positive character building for students.
