Mustang Philosophy

At Episcopal Day, everybody plays!
The Episcopal Day Athletics Program provides students the opportunity to participate in competitive after-school sports and inspires leadership through teamwork. We encourage all eligible students to participate in athletics without tryouts, and we emphasize sportsmanship and participation. Students learn to embrace challenges while taking risks and pursuing their personal best in a safe, encouraging, and growth-mindset environment. We believe students who dedicate themselves to giving their best effort, caring about their team, and participating without fear of failure will ultimately prove themselves as respected leaders.
