A Word About Athletics
What separates our program from most is our proven ability to not only combine, but sustain, both a competitive edge and a focus on sportsmanship. One of the reasons for our successes is that our coaching staff is mostly comprised of our faculty members, providing a well balanced approach to coaching and education. Our coaches recognize that the athletic program provides a powerful forum for discovering and creating "teaching moments." It is through these moments that we foster respect, confidence, teamwork, community, and self-esteem. The more "teaching moments" that we create, the further we develop the skills and character of our student athletes, and this is what will help them throughout the rest of their lives.
Wooster values the commitment of its athletes and has recently upgraded the athletic facilities. In addition to our rolling 125 acre campus, we have four soccer fields, three volleyball courts, two cross country trails, three gymnasiums (with three basketball courts), six tennis courts, two lacrosse fields, a baseball field, and a fitness center. Our newest gymnasium was built 15 years ago as a donation from Steve Young’s Forever Young Foundation.
Wooster provides for the health of its athletes through its Athletic Training Program, run by Certified Athletic Trainer Ron Hutchins.
