The junior varsity level is intended to develop and prepare students to participate and compete at the varsity level. Team membership often varies depending on the sport, but the majority of students are sophomores and freshmen.
Junior varsity participation emphasizes physical conditioning, refinement of physical skills, as well as the understanding of the elements of play and team strategy. At the junior varsity level program there is a balance among the goals of continued player development, team development, and striving to win.
Students who participate at the junior varsity level need to understand and accept responsibility for practicing and working as a team. A high level of commitment and dedication is expected from all participants. Students can expect to be involved in meaningful contest participation during the course of the season. However, the amount of playing time will vary and is not guaranteed.
