Shepaug Valley School encourages students to participate in sports during all seasons, Our athletic program is one in which the students, athletes, and community can be very proud; it contributes greatly to those who actively participate, and it provides entertainment and helps to instill a sense of spirit for the school and community as a whole. While the athletic program serves as an arena for the student-athlete to display his or her talents, student-athletes must, in turn, be willing to accept the responsibility to self, to team, to school, and to the community. The Shepaug Valley athletic program shall be conducted in accordance with the existing Board of Education, C.I.A.C., and Berkshire League policies, rules, and regulations. While all involved take great pride in our success, Shepaug Valley does not condone a “win at all costs" attitude. Everyone involved in our athletic program, from student-athletes, to coaches, to spectators, is asked to help carry Shepaug Valley's long standing tradition of sportsmanship and integrity in athletics.
