Be St. Margaret's

How We Coach

We coach and support student-athletes to Be St. Margaret's, to become part of a team and belong to something bigger than themselves. To believe in what they can achieve and not be afraid to fail. To push themselves to become better people, better students, better teammates, and skilled athletes who are prepared to succeed in life. Whether you’re preparing for college athletics or just looking to try something new, there are plenty of opportunities here for you to push yourself and have fun.

"Athletics is about more than the outcome of a practice or game; it's about coaching our girls for life. The building of one's character through teachable moments on the field, on the court, in the pool, or in the locker room is how you Be St. Margaret's. It's where qualities like self-confidence, resiliency, teamwork, empathy, mental toughness, self-control, and respect for others are developed, almost identical to our To Be Statements, further supporting our long-standing mission and philosophy. That's the big picture." -Director of Athletics and Coach, Cynthia Walker '99

St. Margaret's competes in the League of Independent Schools (LIS) and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA).
