We believe our mission in athletics is to teach students about the importance of discipline, hard work and commitment. This is accomplished through daily, structured practice with attention to details. The athletic program shall be directed so that the welfare of all students will be the primary concern. Fundamental emphasis shall be placed on the philosophy that athletic activities are an extension of the educational program and are justifiable only to the extent that they are desirable learning experiences. Sportsmanship will be the top priority of Bearcat athletics.  Commitment to fair play, integrity, and genuine empathy for others must be taught and practiced if we are to make a difference.  Athletics should assist in the development of fellowship and goodwill.  Athletics will play an important role in developing a healthy self-image as well as a healthy body.  Athletics will also contribute to school/community spirit and pride. Bearcat Athletics promotes the concept of winning, while inspiring development of athletic skill for 7th and 8th  grade student athletes.  This concept allows successful transition of the student athlete to high school sports.  

As part of the philosophy of Union Hill School to foster and develop the whole child, we are proud to support the wide variety of Bearcat Athletic teams:
