Athletics Update: Fitness Remains a Priority

After a winter season devoted to fitness, the spring coaches continue to make it a priority during their sport-specific offerings. At 3:20 p.m. every day, middle school athletes scatter throughout campus to participate in lacrosse, tennis, track & field, volleyball, fencing, badminton, mountain biking, trail running, and disc sports. In addition to all the skill development and modified competitive play, there is also a commitment to fitness. During the pandemic, many of us have become more sedentary. More screens. More confinement. Less movement. From day one, Belmont Day’s coaches have made a concerted effort to combat all the sitting and screens, and even as we head outside and begin to focus on our traditional sport offerings, the commitment to fitness remains.
