We believe that students can gain valuable experience and exercise through participation in PE classes, recess, team sports, and other opportunities for physical activity. They learn specific skills, self-discipline, self-confidence, leadership, cooperation, and good sportsmanship. There are organized teams for tennis, volleyball, soccer, and basketball, as well as intramural basketball. School-wide events include the Boosterthon Fun Run, Turkey Trot, Jump Rope for Heart, and Metric Olympics.
New for 2017-18! We have started a tennis team for girls in 3rd-6th grades. Practices and matches are held at the Floyd Tennis Center.
This is a co-ed team for 5th and 6th graders. Games begin at the end of September. Prior experience is not required. Practices and games are held after school.
There are four co-ed soccer teams: two for 1st-3rd grades and two for 4th-6th grades. First grade students may participate as long as they have had one year prior experience. Practices and home games are held on the front lawn of the school. Our teams compete against other independent schools in the area. All students and families are encouraged to attend!
We have two co-ed teams for 4th-6th grades, with try-outs in October and games beginning in January. Practices and home games are scheduled after school and on Saturdays. Our teams compete against other independent schools in the area.
Intramural basketball is also offered after school for 1st-6th grades. No prior experience is required for intramural basketball participation.
