Junior School Athletics
When students enter the Junior School, they not only participate in a physical education program that is focused on motor skills development, physical and aerobic fitness, cognitive skills development and affective skills, they also continue their roles in the Junior Jacket Sports Program. It is this combination of learning that helps the students develop teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility and enthusiasm for athletics, while also increasing athletic skill development.
As elementary students mature, it is important to provide an environment in which they can grow and progress comfortably while gaining the necessary training to enhance their athletic abilities. Because our students are exposed to sports activities at an early age and receive continued coaching and guidance along the way, many develop unmatched skills that carry them throughout their athletic careers at Detroit Country Day School and beyond.
The Junior Jacket Sports Program is not only available to Detroit Country Day School students, but also any child aged 4 to 12 in surrounding communities. The Junior Jacket Sports Program offers the following camps: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, field hockey, golf, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, soccer, speed stacking, and volleyball. Along with its camps, the program hosts a basketball and flag football league.
