Veteran Coaching Staff Excited for Season

The success of Belmont Day’s athletics program is a direct result of its talented and dedicated coaching staff. This fall, twelve faculty members and one alum will lead the largest group of athletes in program history onto our fields and trails. From division-one college standouts to three-sport high school athletes, this season’s coaches bring a unique balance of sport-specific knowledge and educational philosophy. Top all of that with years of coaching experience and it’s clear that this is shaping up to be a special season for Belmont Day Athletics. Be sure to check out our athletes (and coaches) in action this fall with the first games/meets scheduled for Wednesday, September 18.
