Welcome to Kew-Forest. As Director of Athletics, I aim to support the nurturing and encouraging environment the School has created for its student body by promoting health and wellness through our developmental and competitive sports programs. Having been a student athlete myself, I deeply understand the important role team sports and general physical activity during these formative years can play in developing character, confidence, and self-esteem.
Kew-Forest is a member of the Private School Athletic Association (PSAA) league and has adapted to the challenges we currently face for athletics while keeping the spirit of interscholastic competition alive. The School has created a robust and inclusive athletic program that makes space for intellectual, social, and emotional growth.
In addition, we offer opportunities for students to participate outside of playing on a team, which include assistance with team management and scorekeeping. These opportunities promote cooperation, improve communication skills, and foster inclusion. Students are allowed to learn, grow, and explore their interests in a supportive environment.
Whether you are participating on or off the court, I look forward to working with all of our students on their fitness journey.
