The purpose of the Golda Och Academy athletic program is to offer a rewarding athletic experience and to develop the athletic potential of all our students. Recognizing the distinct differences between Middle School and High School students, and the wide range of individual abilities, the athletic program strives to meet everyone’s needs.
Athletes are encouraged to develop a sense of positive sportsmanship, integrity, values, ethics, and derekh eretz and to display these qualities on and off the field. Development of leadership, personal responsibility and self esteem, and sensitivity and compassion towards others are also desired outcomes of the athletic program.
The ultimate goal of the Golda Och Academy athletic program is to enable the athletes to mature socially, emotionally and physically. The individual’s character is built on respect of self and others, physical and emotional discipline and the ability to give 100 percent during practice as well as competition. Most importantly, our athletes learn to accept defeat and victory with equal poise. The success of the athletic program is built on commitment, cooperation, tolerance and enthusiasm among the individual players, coaches, administration, parents and community.
