In keeping with Vail Mountain School's mission, the athletic programs at VMS provide a positive and inclusive atmosphere where participants will grow emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Athletic programs are an extension of the classroom at VMS; important characteristics and skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, integrity, and grit are ingrained through team building, practices or workouts, and games.The athletics program at VMS is designed to serve both the elite and casual athletes. If a student is interested in a sport that is not offered, we have reciprocity with local schools to allow our athletes to participate on their sports teams.
