The Rudolf Steiner Storm

In addition to encouraging movement and play at all levels, the Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor offers organized athletic opportunities for students in Grades 5-12.  
 

After-School Sports Club

The Sports Club is offered to students in Grades 5 and 6.  It is an optional athletic program with a non-competitive atmosphere that helps to prepare students for competitive sports in the older grades.  The emphasis is on motor skill development; knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics; and enjoyment from an athletic experience.
 

Team Sports

Team sports can be a wonderful experience for students.  Lessons about persistence, effort and sportsmanship that are learned on the field can be carried into the rest of life.  RSSAA offers competitive seasonal sports for students in grades 5-12.  Our program emphasizes healthy competition, teamwork and support, enjoyment, and physical development.

Lower School
The RSSAA Lower School belongs to the Ann Arbor Independent Athletic Association (AAIAA) and is in a league with other private and parochial schools.  In addition to regular games against the other teams in our league, all teams participate in a league tournament at the end of season.  Sports seasons generally run eight weeks with an average of two games per week.

Steiner Storm Philosophy

Our school takes great pride in its athletic teams and our small size allows any interested students the opportunity to compete in a varsity sport. Over 60% of our school population chooses to participate on a varsity sports team. That’s school spirit!

The goal of the Rudolf Steiner High School athletic program is to challenge each student to be the best he or she can be. Knowledgeable coaches vigorously teach the fundamental skills and strategies of each sport. A vital component of the program is the expectation to succeed, and the community, school, personnel, coaches and athletes all strive to excel. However, the program does not take a “win at all costs” approach. A healthy, competitive attitude is the goal for each student, and teamwork and peer support are integral to the athletic program. Rudolf Steiner High School is proud to be a “no-cut” Athletic Department. We believe that our “no-cut” policy aligns with our department philosophy about the benefits of participation in interscholastic athletics.

Being an athlete on a high school team requires dedication of time and energy. Learning to make a commitment to oneself and teammates is invaluable in a young person’s development. An athlete who never gives up, keeps trying and pushes toward achieving their personal best learns that true success is attained when a person is persistent in their thoughts, feelings and actions. Rudolf Steiner Storm teams exhibit exemplary sportsmanship and attitude, which have made a positive impact with opposing teams, officials and fans.
