Letter from the Athletic Director

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Winston athletics! The Winston School values the important role that athletics play in contributing to a college preparatory education and is an intricate part of our mission to maximize the potential of bright students who learn differently through sports.

We welcome all students to participate in our interscholastic sports programs.  Sports are an excellent way to grow emotionally as an individual.  As a former high school and collegiate athlete, I know that athletics played a major role in helping prepare me for college and the adult world. Because of sports, the lessons of my coaches, and the games I played, I developed skills in time management, problem solving, delegation, motivation, and team building.

The Winston Athletic Department’s philosophy is that the student athlete’s pursuits on the field should be equally measured with those off of it. To that end, a Winston athlete should pursue personal growth through academic work, team experiences, and as an ambassador of our school.

The department strives to maintain an outstanding athletics program, conducted in a manner that sets an example for good sportsmanship. Our primary concern is the education of the student-athlete. We expect all who choose to participate in our sports programs to be responsible student-athletes. We hope you will take full advantage of this opportunity to get a top-notch education while participating in our athletic programs. Toward these ends, Winston offers 8 Varsity teams and three seasons of co curricular sports (Fall, Winter, Spring). Though focused upon more than athletic achievement, Winston athletes compete successfully at the State, Regional, and District levels.

Go Eagles!

Timothy G. Waters Jr. M.Ed.
