Sports Poll Results
Thank you to all who participated in the interest-based poll. Interscholastic sports at Parker are a valued part of the program and a source of pleasure and pride for our students. We strive each season to create positive learning environments where students can grow as athletes, teammates, and ambassadors for Parker who demonstrate good sportsmanship on and off the field.
The breadth and depth of our interscholastic sports offerings are shaped by the size of our school, available resources and facilities, and the Ten Common Principles. We offer sports governed by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). Adding additional sports takes careful consideration: they must have minimal impact to sports we currently offer. And we seek to offer a good balance of non-contact verses contact sports. We have in the past developed cooperative arrangements with other schools that allow Parker to play sports that are not part of our “in-house” menu of options. Our policy is that we’ll have no more than two cooperatives per year.
Based on feedback from the poll we’ll begin to pursue co-op options for tennis. There are many steps involved, and it is unlikely we’ll be able to engage in a partnership for the Spring 2018 season. But this seems like the most promising sport to pursue at this time.
