Rumsey Hall Blue Dogs
We Believe in EFFORT, COURAGE, and nurturing the DRIVE FOR SUCCESS.
The Blue Dog Spirit is defined by perseverance, attitude, and the relationships built between teammates and coaches. We offer a full schedule of competitive and non-competitive teams for IIIrd Form (5th Grade) through VIIth Form (9th Grade) students—supporting all levels of play.
Students build lasting skills and cultivate a passion for a variety of sports by participating in fall, winter, and spring season athletics each school year. Our faculty-coaches teach healthy habits and training techniques to thrive physically. Athletes are equipped with knowledge of the sport and then experience first-hand an understanding of their contribution to team dynamics.
Everyone has the chance to play ...whether they’ve played the sport before or are trying it for the first time.
It takes courage to accept a new challenge. We create the opportunity to gain confidence in a variety of ropes/rock-climbing/outdoor adventures.
"Being a Blue Dog cultivated my sportsmanship and leadership—whether I was on the court, the field, or the sidelines cheering my peers on. We held our heads high even if we were not ringing the victory bell after every competition. Rumsey was a space to practice celebrating the highs with grace and valuing the lows as a learning experience. These are just a few experiences that have had a lasting effect on who I am to this day, and I am thankful for them." -Delando Clarke '14, Wesleyan University
