Are you interested in helping student-athletes learn life lessons through athletics while also competing for championships? If so, Wilmington Friends School might just be the place for you. Competing in the Delaware Independent Schools Conference, we offer 14 sports for our middle school students and 15 sports for our high school students. We believe that athletics and competition offer distinctive educational opportunities, which is why our middle school students are required to participate in three sports during their 7th and 8th grade years while high school students must participate in one.
At Wilmington Friends, we recognize that student-athletes have different strengths and skills that bring value to their specific teams. We also expect our student-athletes to be big on the field, yet modest in how they present themselves off of it. Lastly, it is imperative that our coaches emphasize the core Quaker values of Stewardship, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Simplicity (SPICES) each day to our student-athletes for these values extend beyond athletics and will help them as they grow into young adults.
If you are interested in joining this athletic community, please send your resume and a letter of interest to Athletic Director Jeff Ransom at: email@example.com
