VMS Athletic Department 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.  

Upper School Sports

Athletics and physical conditioning are considered essential components of a well-rounded VMS experience. Therefore, upper school students must fulfill a physical fitness requirement by participating in a sport for one of the seasons. This can be accomplished by involvement in an interscholastic sport or fitness activity approved by the athletic director. Please note that the athletics offerings below are subject to change. In addition, VMS Students have the opportunity to play sports for other schools in the valley who offer sports that we do not, i.e - Football, Baseball, Dance, Track and Field, Boys Tennis, etc. Please reach out to Athletic Director Bobby Ecker at Becker@vms.edu for more information.
