FXW Athletics

The Frances Xavier Warde School’s athletic program for students in grades 2-8 is an integral part of the School’s commitment to nurturing the whole child — mentally, physically, and spiritually. The Athletic Department views the athletic activities on the playing fields and courts as an extension of the classroom. Therefore, the School’s mission for athletics stresses the importance of:

  • Social, Emotional, and Physical development through athletics
  • Meeting the individual needs of all students
  • Modeling a learning process that includes self-discipline, respect, success, and failure
  • Giving all students the opportunity to participate in athletics

FXW Partnership with PCA (Positive Coaching Alliance)

A positive approach gets the most from youth and high school athletes, which is what coaches, parents, and the athletes themselves want. Staying positive also helps youth get the most out of sports.

Encouraging athletes with positive reinforcement helps them hear and heed the necessary corrections. With that winning combination of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism, athletic performance improves and so do the chances that kids stick with sports longer and learn all the valuable life lessons inherently available through organized competition.

Academic research and real-world scoreboard results from millions of coaches, parents, and athletes that PCA has trained and educated prove what the pro and college coaches on PCA’s National Advisory Board already know: Positive is powerful. www.positivecoach.org
