Excellent Coaching / Saint Edward’s coaches are dedicated educators, passionate about their sports and about bringing out the best in their athletes. Most were themselves accomplished collegiate and competitive athletes.

Saint Edward’s 38 interscholastic teams face rivals from other Florida independent and private schools, including some of the region’s strongest programs.
We build rapport with our student athletes creating an atmosphere for success, teaching the proper values, skills and strategies. A love of activity starts with the Physical Education program, which begins in Pre-K. Students then progress to Lower School Intramurals, then Middle School Sports and eventually varsity-level competition in the Upper School. Saint Edward’s School fields 36 teams in 18 sports and enjoys an enviable record of success, and our no-cut philosophy ensures that everyone has a chance to discover and play. Athletes with a range of abilities at all levels find opportunities to advance their skills and compete to their full potential.
