Dexter Southfield offers a full complement of interscholastic team sports for students in Classes 7-12. Varsity and sub-varsity teams compete against other schools in the Boston area and throughout New England. Classes 7-8 play a Middle School schedule in most of the sports offerings of the interscholastic program.
Sub-varsity teams concentrate on fundamental skill development as well as knowledge of tactics and rules. The goal is to help individuals and teams improve, while providing a framework for personal growth through teamwork and competition at a level commensurate with students’ skill and physical development. Ideally, every player will participate in each game; however, playing time is left to the discretion of the coach. The determining factors are attendance, cooperation with teammates and coaches, sportsmanship, effort, the quality of the opponent, and the competitive situation of the contest.
