Skill, commitment, and maturity are the basis for varsity selection. Each girl’s skill level is re-evaluated at the beginning of the season to determine team membership. At this highest level of competition, decisions regarding playing time are made at the discretion of the coaches. The varsity experience is intended to be the culminating high school experience for the highly committed and skilled athlete.
The junior varsity level enhances team and individual skills and prepares athletes for the extremely competitive varsity experience. Coaches determine playing time with a dual emphasis on the competitive quality of the experiences and the skill of the players.
Freshman programs are added in some sports to enhance the skill development of athletes by providing additional game opportunities. Freshman athletes are able to experience high school competition and learn first hand the high level of commitment expected at the junior varsity and varsity levels.
