Athletics participation is offered at the varsity, junior varsity, freshman, Grade 7 & 8, and Grade 6 levels for boys and girls. Our teams practice after school Monday through Friday. Varsity teams practice every weekday, JV teams four days a week, freshman teams three days a week, and Middle School teams two to three days a week. An activity bus runs for students who participate in sports after school. Most competitions are held during the week, but there are occasional weekend commitments.
