Madeira Athletics

At The Madeira School, we believe that interscholastic athletics are part of the total educational experience. We feel that student-athletes are individuals first and foremost, and we will do our best to assist them in growing and developing into independent, strong young women who can succeed at life.


Interscholastic athletics puts the student-athletes in a demanding and competitive environment that challenges them physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is our conviction that the skills and strategies learned through athletic competition are valuable tools which may be used to enrich the lives of the student-athletes, as participation in sports is an integral part of the culture in which we live.




Madeira Athletics inspires the development of strong competitors while instilling the intangible qualities of leadership and a commitment to becoming part of something greater than oneself.


Madeira Athletics will build a culture that allows each individual the opportunity to reach their highest level of personal achievement through a commitment to leadership development, teamwork and discipline.
