Athletics Program

Our athletics program returned to play with a full offering of sports in 2021-2022, following guidelines put forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Restore Illinois, and Be Safe. Chicago.

FXW’s athletic program is an integral part of our commitment to nurturing the whole child. We believe that physical activity promotes mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. The FXW athletic program believes in promoting a positive sports culture, and has established a framework that we strive to maintain. Our driving principles highlight ideals and standards that guide our student athletes, coaches, and parents to achieve this atmosphere. The mission of FXW’s athletic program is to foster the growth of well-rounded, confident young adults in an age-appropriate manner. Our program emphasizes the importance of four key areas:

  • 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

The athletic program, starting in Grade 2, offers students the opportunity to explore competitive sports in a safe way. Trained coaches emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity and self-discipline while commending individual effort and commitment. We also believe that activities on the playing fields and courts are an extension of the classroom.
