Extracurricular participation is required in each year of Grades 9-12. This requirement can be met either through participation on a team sport or through participation in a drama production. Most recently, over 95% of the Upper School student body participated in athletics, many in more than one sport.
Participation depends largely upon the desire of the individual student. Our participation statistics (see Question 3) demonstrate that there is a place in our program for any student-athlete who sincerely wants to contribute.
Each year a number of Cape Henry student-athletes are recruited by various college athletic programs. Our graduates are currently participating in basketball, field hockey, soccer, swimming, lacrosse, and baseball at the collegiate level. The coaching staff, Athletic Director, and Director of College Counseling work together to facilitate college admittance for our talented athletes.
Yes. We play a difficult schedule in all of our sports as a member of the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools. Our teams are well-equipped and our playing fields and facilities are among the finest in our conference. Our coaching staff is dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. The majority of our coaches also teach here at Cape Henry Collegiate. We experience a high degree of competitive athletic success; yet we do not measure the excellence of our athletic program in terms of wins and losses. Cape Henry Collegiate has been awarded the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools Sportsmanship Award on three separate occasions.
We field varsity, junior varsity and in some sports junior/junior varsity or middle school teams in the following girl’s sports: Basketball, Cheerleading, Soccer, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Tennis, Swimming, Volleyball, Softball, Track, Crew, Golf, Dance, and Lacrosse. For boys we offer the following sports at the varsity, JV and in some cases JJV and middle school teams: Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Swimming, Wrestling, Basketball, Tennis, Track, Baseball, Golf, Lacrosse, Dance, and Crew.
