Athletic Philosophy

The Bay School supports a large, varied, and competitive athletic program consistent with the school’s commitment to a healthy and responsible lifestyle. Over 70% of our student body participates in at least one sport during their time at Bay. We encourage our athletes to strive to win without losing sight of our fundamental values. These values include our school’s guiding precepts, hard work, perseverance, and commitment. Games, matches, and races are occasions of community affirmation and joy, regardless of the outcome.
Our coaching staff is comprised of lifelong athletes who are experienced, ethical and enthusiastic educators. Their commitment to athletic excellence mirrors the high standards of our academic program. The Bay School offers an interscholastic athletics program grounded in the dual values of broad participation and competitive integrity. Bay athletes, coaches, spectators, parents, and guardians see sports as a vehicle for personal growth and self-discovery. 

As part of the California Interscholastic Federation North Coast Section (NCS) and Bay Counties League–Central (BCL-Central), Bay supports 24 girls, boys, and coed teams across 10 sports. Almost 70 percent of our students participate on an athletic team each year and 100 percent of 9th-, 10th-, and 11th-graders participate in a sport or physical activity. Bay athletes earn all-league team honors every season, and in its relatively short history, the school has brought home over 30 league championships and numerous berths in North Coast Section playoffs.
