Middle School Athletics

The goal at the Middle School is to provide an ample amount of athletic opportunities for students over the course of the year. Our main emphasis is on participation, sportsmanship and citizenship. Our qualified coaching staff strive to provide a positive athletic experience for all students at the Middle School.

Athletic Teams

Middle School athletic teams focus on encouraging participation, developing sportsmanship, and promoting citizenship.

Our goals for students in Grades 6-8 are to:

  • provide a variety of athletic opportunities;
  • create positive athletic experience; and
  • prepare students for sports at the Senior School.

In extracurricular sports, all students can shine. In Grades 6 and 7, students can join and play on any team – no tryouts are necessary. In Grade 8, students get ready to make the leap to Senior School sports levels. Grade 8 teams focus on assembling more skilled athletes for competitive play, although second teams are sometimes set up for those who want to play and develop their skills.

School teams require time commitment. Grade 6 and 7 players usually have one practice and one game per week. At the Grade 8 level, teams can have up to four practices or games per week. The school year has been divided into four seasons of play, allowing students to schedule other commitments and play on multiple teams.
