Welcome to Community School of Naples Athletics! What can you expect from our Athletic Program? Your student-athlete will pursue academic and athletic excellence each day. We generally compete in nearly 500 athletic contests over the course of a 172-day school year. Although we missed out on most of the spring season due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we did get a number of games played. We made sure to celebrate our spring teams in late April, and then created an end-of-year video reviewing the entire athletic school year.
CSN is considered a “combined” school by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), which means our Middle School student-athletes can compete at the JV and Varsity levels.
CSN’s Athletic Department is committed to excellence, and believes leadership and character development are essential to success in life. Our aim is to “match athletic excellence with academic excellence” and “forge global citizen leaders of tomorrow through rigorous athletic competition today.” Athletic competition hones leadership skills, tests character, and elevates confidence in student-athletes while they experience personal growth.
Our coaches embrace the concept of winning with teamwork, leadership, respect, integrity and work ethic on and off the field. Even though COVID-19 cut short our spring season, eight teams were District Champions or Runners-up and went on to Region competition, two reached the Region Finals, and boys basketball won Regions and advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 2013! Individual successes mirrored our team honors as two student-athletes were chosen Naples Daily News “Prep Athlete of the Week.” Forty-eight student-athletes earned All-Area honors, and three new CSN records were set in swimming & diving.
Leveraging athletics to better balance CSN student resumés illustrates our commitment to families and the general value of athletics in education and in life. We work in concert with the college counseling, arts, and academic departments to match the best colleges and universities for our students. Success doesn’t happen without the dedication and support our student-athletes receive from CSN leadership, faculty, coaches, family and friends. Welcome to CSN and our proud heritage of excellence!
