7th & 8th Grades

In the seventh and eighth grades, the intent is for each student to participate in interscholastic competition during the fall and spring seasons. An attempt is made to have all athletes who dress for a game, play at least half a game. Occasionally, due to the large number of participants, all athletes will not dress for each contest. In some sports the rules permit an extra period so that more athletes can compete. We take advantage of this whenever possible.

Winter season

During the winter season, not all of the students who choose to play interscholastic basketball or volleyball are able to do so since the interest is very high, far exceeding available space. The selection is made according to ability, potential, attitude, and effort. Those students not selected, take part in a physical education program that entails a rotating curriculum for each winter season:

Cardio-fitness

Weight training
Yoga
Sport education
Adventure activities
