Country Day student-athletes have benefited this year from the presence of two new faces in the program: Taylor Smith and Stefan Montanez have joined the Bucs’ Strength & Conditioning staff as part of a Coaching Fellows pilot program and have helped elevate already strong training programs to new levels.
Athletics At Country Day
Our Athletics program is a fundamental part of a Country Day education. On average, 85 percent of our students in Grades 7–12 participate on at least one interscholastic team in a given school year. Student-athletes have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with their teammates and learn important life lessons while experiencing the pride of competing for their school. Buccaneer teams have built a storied tradition, earning 136 state championships in the school’s history.
