Sage Ridge is committed to excellence in athletics, just as it is committed to excellence in academics, the arts and each of the other key elements of education which address the whole student. We will continue to have a strong athletics program in the fall and are working closely with NIAA and TAH-NEVA. We have already started a robust athletics planning process for 2020-2021 and are excited to connect with coaches over the summer to plan for the new year...

Senior Spring Athlete Spotlight!

What comes to your mind when you think of an athlete?  Is it a vision of a particular athlete?  Is it a list of characteristics that describe an athlete?  Is it someone who just does their best in everything they do?  Or, is it someone who simply chooses to be?  My answer is, all of the above.  I asked myself the same questions, and the athlete that came to mind...Maddy Lewis.

This past Tuesday, the Upper School Winter Sports Teams celebrated the accomplishments and successes of our athletes and teams at our annual Winter Athletics Banquet. We recognized team successes, individual achievements, and personal victories. It was a perfect time to reflect on the accomplishments of the past season, and a time to look forward to the seasons ahead and think about what we want, who we want to become, and then call out what we want to achieve!

For the first time in Sage Ridge Athletic History, our Boys Varsity Basketball Team made it to the NIAA 1A West/Central Regional Semi-Finals.  After beating Oasis Academy in the quarterfinals, our boys were fired up to take on League rivals, Sierra Lutheran, in the semi's!  Unfortunately, our season came to a close with the 42-29 loss to the Falcons.  Yes, there was disappointment.  Yes, there was anger.  Yes, there was "what if?"  And yes, the right questions were asked: What went well on the court today?  What needs work tomorrow?  Why will we be better because we lost?

Be a "Come with Me" Teammate

Patrick Casey

I first heard the term "Come with Me" teammate from a keynote speaker at a conference I attended years ago.  The individual spoke of a teammate he had that lived and played selflessly.  He credited his teammate for helping him "get better".  Not only on the field, but also in life.  You can see the impact this teammate had on this individual's life, and he would always be thankful for it...

Finding That Coachable Moment

How do coaches recognize a "coachable moment?" Is it when an athlete is struggling? An impromptu opportunity for learning? When you see an opportunity for growth? When an athlete is demonstrating accountability or leadership? All the above! These are just a few examples of opportunities coaches can immediately respond to and say, "Let me assist you with how you are thinking about this."

Why does it hurt when we lose our heroes? I was in line at a local coffee shop recently, and I heard someone comment about the recent passing of LA Lakers icon, Kobe Bryant and eight others in a tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA.  The individual said something very interesting, "Why is everyone so upset, it's not like they knew him personally?"

WD>WS. No, this is not a typo or an algorithm. This is the definition of leading by example: Well Done is greater than Well Said. Words motivate you, actions inspire you. Sometimes we need a good quote to effectively deliver a message, or to begin/end a speech or essay. But always remember, as a leader, as a coach, as a teammate, you speak most powerfully through your actions. Well Said is important, but Well Done is always better.
