The emphasis of the Boulder Country Day sports program is to develop athletic skills, foster self-esteem and promote team leadership skills in a competitive program. Through practice, students gain an understanding of rules and strategy of the game as well as developing their specific game skills.
BCD Bulldogs build strength, agility and cardiovascular efficiency. Boulder Country Day's sports program helps students gain experience and confidence they will use in all aspects of their lives.
Students in grades 5th - 8th are eligible to play on all BCD sports teams. Fifth grade participation is based on enrollment, but typically all interested 5th graders are welcomed onto the rosters. Typically 85-90% of 5th - 8th graders play on one or more teams and many play every season. Some athletes balance BCD sport with outside club teams and many go on to play sports in high school.
BCD is a member of the MSAL (Middle School Athletic Conference) which is comprised of 8 teams.
North Division – BCD, Peak to Peak, Prospect Ridge, and Dawson
South Division – Faith Christian, Stargate, Flatirons Academy,, and Jefferson Academy
BCD looks at each child in terms of the whole person, not just the academic piece. We also give them the social skills they need to prepare them to succeed in life."
Boulder Country Day School is proud to partner with Positive Coaching Allianceto bring training and education to our program to help establish a positive, character-building experience for our athletes. BCD has additionally provided PCA education for parents on how they can help their children make themselves, their teammates and the game better.
Each year, a middle school student takes on the roll of being our school mascot, Kersey the bulldog.
Kersey is named after BCD’s long time faculty member, Doyle Kersey. Mr. Kersey has been a member of our faculty and staff since our original founding and is considered by many to be the patriarch of our school. Mr. Kersey currently teaches Latin to students in 6th – 8th grade.
