At Princeton Day School, student wellness is paramount and the School offers strong resources and programming for physical and mental health. Sean Lewandoski, new this year and the first Athletics Performance Coach at Princeton Day School, is a champion of whole-person wellness with a focus on body strength and conditioning. Lewandoski’s mission is to ensure that every student athlete has access to the training and resources that will make them healthier players.
Athletics Director Katie Fay is excited that Lewandoski has joined the team and also thrilled that the Fitness Center is open once again, after an 18-month COVID hiatus, to “help our students become faster and stronger and prevent some injuries along the way.”
As the fall athletic season is now coming to a close, Lewandoski reflects on his first two months working with PDS student athletes, “My first sports season here has been awesome. As the weeks passed, it was clear that the students became comfortable with approaching me about their goals and how to achieve them.” In addition to physically preparing athletes for their sports, Lewandoski recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to his coaching. “Whether it be athletic success or general lifestyle and wellness advice, we are always able to talk it out and formulate a plan to achieve those goals,” he explains.
Looking ahead, Lewandoski is also excited about the cold-weather sports season to come. “The PDS winter sports teams have been putting in a tremendous amount of work since the start of the school year. I’m eager to see their hard work pay dividends for them once it comes time to compete!”
