Trinity School Receives Prestigious National Award for Reimagining School Sports
Updated

Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill is the Aspen Institute’s $20,000 winner of the Private School category. This national honor recognizes Trinity School as an exemplary and innovative school that grows sports and physical activity participation for all students. The school was chosen for its innovative, personalized four-year athletic plan for students—similar to a four-year academic plan.

The Aspen Institute’s initiative recognizes the essential role that high schools play in preparing young people for life, along with the cognitive, educational, and health benefits that flow to students through physical activity, a belief Trinity School shares. It is made possible through partnerships with Adidas/BOKS, The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation, and Hospital for Special Surgery.

Trinity School will be featured in the Aspen Institute’s new reportSport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Develop Every Student Through Sports, along with three other finalists: Gaston Day School (Gastonia, NC), O’Connell College Preparatory School (Galveston, TX), and Seacrest Country Day School (Naples, FL). It includes an analysis of the opportunities and challenges facing private school sports, a profile of Trinity School, ideas from the other finalists to grow participation, and national survey results from high school students about their sports experiences at private schools. These findings will culminate in a final report to be released in 2022 that features three additional school types and will include systems-level recommendations that can drive progress for high school sports.

Trinity School's athletics program offers 10 sports and fields more than 30 teams during three full seasons of interscholastic sports for students in grades 6–12. Students compete at the middle school, JV, and varsity levels, and more than 85% of eligible students participate. Trinity teams strive to compete with excellence while enabling students to learn fundamental skills, sportsmanship, leadership, and perseverance in the pursuit of their goals, helping each team member to reach his or her full potential.

“The Trinity School model cares for the whole child. Our approach applies in the classroom, on the field, and in the gym. It’s been a great experience working with the Aspen Institute, and we’ve learned so much from that process. We are honored to be recognized by them and proud to share our student athletic program with other schools,” says Sophie Smith, Athletic Director for the school.

The school will receive a $20,000 check from the Aspen Institute at a special awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, September 10, on the Trinity School campus prior to its Varsity Boys soccer game. Read the full report at as.pn/PrivateSchoolSports.
