Athletics Update 8.5.22
As the new 2022-23 school year approaches, we are excited about the upcoming seasons. Last year was a great year with many accomplishments on and off the field. We see great things to come for Westminster Athletics and look forward to how the Lord will use our student athletes and coaches to further His kingdom.
We want to welcome John Egan as our new Athletic Director. Coach Egan comes to Westminster from The Village School of Naples, in Naples, Fla., where he has served as its director of athletics since July 2021. Prior to that he spent nine years as the director of athletics and girls varsity soccer coach at Christian Heritage School in Trumbull, Conn. In both roles, Coach Egan was integral in the development of new and fledgling programs and increasing the participation of existing programs. He has coached successful soccer teams to New England Championships, League Championships, and New England tournaments, and been named Connecticut Prep Coach of the Year and National Coach of the Year (NCSAA). Coach Egan earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Gordon College, and his Master of Education with an Athletic Administration concentration from Springfield College.
Westminster Schools of Augusta fields 41 teams in 12 sports, including, football, cheerleading, clay shooting sports, cross country, volleyball, basketball, swimming, baseball, soccer, tennis, golf, and track and field. It is the goal of our Athletic Department to impact our students and our community for God?s kingdom through the pursuit of excellence in the athletic arena.
Our fall sports include Varsity and Middle School football, Varsity and Middle School cheerleading, JV & Varsity clay shooting sports, Varsity and Middle School cross-country, JV and Middle School volleyball, Middle School tennis, and Middle School golf. Please visit our website for the tryout and start date listings for each sport.
We have many athletic opportunities and we encourage all students to participate. The Wildcat Way is a touchstone statement that we hope will describe our athletes as well as challenge them to be the very best they can be on and off the field or court. It states, ?We honor Christ first. We expect the best from our teammates because we demand the best from ourselves. We reject complacency and outwork our opponents as we strive for success. We compete with uncompromising character and integrity at all times. We demonstrate an unwavering pursuit of excellence. We live the Wildcat Way.?
Athletic physical forms are available online under Athletics>Teams&Coaches. Please remember that all student-athletes must have a current physical and concussion form on file in the Athletic office BEFORE they are allowed to practice. Physicals are good for 365 days from the date of the physician's signature.
