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. Participating students should experience enjoyment as well as challenges in their sport. A vital component of the program is the expectation to succeed. 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. Knowledgeable coaches vigorously teach the fundamental skills and strategies of each sport. 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.
As a member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) and the Mid-South Conference, we compete with other Class D schools in Girls Volleyball, co-ed tennis, and both Boys and Girls teams in basketball, soccer and cross country. We also have club level track and boys golf. Our teams have won several conference and district championships, and our Volleyball team has won a regional championship. Over the years, we’ve steadily expanded both the number of activities and number of involved students.
