VMS Athletics Philosophy
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.
Participating in sports at VMS helped me learn to make time to practice and play games, even when I feel like there is no extra time to spare. I can manage my time to accommodate many activities. Alumnus ‘12
