George School is Member of The Friends Schools League

George School is part of the Friends School League, a group of nine different independent schools outside of Philadelphia who share a common outlook on sports as opportunities for personal and athletic growth. It was established in 1981 with George School’s own Anne LeDuc as one of the founders. The other eight schools include: Abington Friends, The Academy of the New Church, Friend’s Central, Friends Select, German Friends, Moorestown Friends, The Shipley School, and Westtown.

FSL Mission Statement

The Friends Schools League draws its principles from a Quaker vision of community and shared values. It is a place for growth, learning, and competition ––friendly competition, that is! Students in the League are encouraged to grow not only as athletes, but also as people. Respect for athletes of all abilities and stages of development is essential.

Community is the central value of the League. This goes hand in hand with an atmosphere of respect. The League is guided by the Friends values of seeking understanding and resolution, as well as sharing the responsibility of all successes.

FSL Sportsmanship Guidelines

Promoting sportsmanship is a high priority for the Friends Schools League. We expect that our athletes, coaches, and supporters on the stands will all lead by example both on and off of the field. The League does not permit any inappropriate language, gestures, physical contact, or social media posts.  Mastering self-control is important for every student athlete, whether they win or lose.

Specifically, the Friends Schools League has the following expectations for all involved in its athletic contests:

  • Accept the responsibility and privilege of representing school, community, and League.
  • Live up to the high standards of sportsmanship established by the League.
  • Make sportsmanship the number one priority.
  • Be a good role model.
  • Support your team in a positive manner.
  • Always interact positively with the other team and its fans.
  • Treat opponents, their fans, and officials with respect.
  • Shake hands with opponents at the end of competition.
  • Search out opponents and recognize them for outstanding performances.
  • Abide by the rules of the competition to conduct a fair contest.
  • Play within the spirit of the game.
  • Social media should be used in a responsible, positive, and respectful way.
