Princeton Day School welcomed back our Upper School student-athletes on August 21 to kick off pre-season sports. After practice, our student-athletes from all teams and all grades in the Upper School, as well as student-athletes from the 8th grade class, were invited to the campus center for lunch and a special presentation about promoting character through athletics called "Panthers Are." Director of Athletics Tim Williams, who hosted the event, noted "The goal of this seminar is to promote character through athletics and, more specifically, create leaders who promote character, leadership, and respect through participation in athletics both on our teams and beyond."
The School was honored to welcome six outstanding student-athletes from Princeton University to share their experiences with the students in a panel discussion led by Coach Ed Tseng: four players from the women's soccer team and two players from the men's water polo team. In addition, a number of recent Panther alums who are playing sports at their respective colleges joined the seminar. Each student was given a t-shirt with the message "Panthers Are," and encouraged to wear them at practice. Here are photos from today's "Panthers Are" seminar. Go Panthers!
