Dear Families,

Another exciting school year is about to begin and with that, another year of athletics is upon us. This fall, the athletic department will be offering opportunities for Boys Soccer, Girls Volleyball, and Boys Rugby 7s. Students in grades 6-12 are welcome to participate and are asked to please contact  sschlitten@td.edu regarding your interest. All teams welcome experienced players as well as players brand new to the sport.

Athletics is a fantastic way for new students to meet other students and immerse themselves in the school. Please do not wait until the last minute to notify my office if you are interested in playing. The school will be sending out information regarding training camps and important details directly to parents who express interest via email.

Boys Soccer: Open to grades 6-12. Grades 6 and 7 will be barred from playing in competition but will take part in all practices and team events. Practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:15pm to 5:00pm at Thornton-Donovan.

Girls Volleyball: Open to grades 6-12. Grade 6 will be barred from playing in competition but will take part in all practices and team events. Practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:15pm to 5:00pm at Thornton-Donovan and Anshe Sholom Synagogue (Transportation to the synagogue will be handled by Thornton-Donovan).

Boys Rugby 7s: Open to grades 6-12. Grades 6 and 7 will be barred from playing in competition but will take part in all practices and team events. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15pm to 5:00pm at Thornton-Donovan.

Again, I cannot stress how important it is to contact the athletic department at sschlitten@td.edu as soon as possible with your interest or any questions. Teams will be sending out training camp information, prices, and required equipment only to those families that have responded.

Sincerely,

Steven H. Schlitten
Director of Admissions & Athletics
