The New Roads Athletics Program offers a vital learning experience for the advanced and developing athlete alike.
New Roads student-athletes are taught to thrive in our unique school culture and learning environment, and to apply those teachings to appreciate the privilege and responsibility of athletic competition at the highest level. Our goal is for students to become better people while at the same time striving in the most competitive arena. Students participating in athletics at New Roads are instilled with the principles of teamwork, integrity, dedication, balance, and how to push themselves beyond their own expectations – values that enhance their pursuit of success on and off the field of play.
Our elementary school wellness program stresses gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, yoga, mindfulness practices, general fitness and units of various sports including basketball, pickleball, soccer, floor hockey and more. Leadership, sportsmanship, cooperation, empathy and positive self-image are encouraged throughout all grades. Team sports are offered in both 4th and 5th grades and include co-ed flag football, girls and boys basketball, co-ed soccer and 3rd through 5th grade co-ed track and field. New Roads is part of the Coastal Canyon League and each sports season has two practices per week and games or meets.
