Interscholastic sports in the Middle School foster teamwork, responsibility and school spirit while also introducing the demands of training and competition. We encourage students to participate in as many sports as possible during this time of growth and development. All 7th and 8th graders are required to join at least two teams per year. Most athletes are able to participate in the sport they choose, with the exception of sports that have roster limitations. However, we always provide at least one sport option in every season where participation is guaranteed.
Middle School teams meet Tuesdays-Fridays from 2:40 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Teams practice and play on campus unless otherwise noted. Games take place after school hours and, on average, teams have 8-10 competitions per season. It is expected that athletes will attend all practices and games during the season. Exceptions are the badminton and track teams, which do not compete after school, and Dance Company, which holds its performance at the end of the winter season.
For Middle School, transportation is provided to all practices and competitions. In squash, the team practices and plays off-campus at Roland Park Racquet Club; therefore, the team size is limited to the capacity of a mini bus (14). Transportation is also provided for the softball team to Bryn Mawr’s Mt. Washington location for home games. All other Middle School teams play on campus.
Most Upper School teams practice from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. on weekdays, with the exceptions of ice hockey and swimming, which often practice in the early morning. For all sports, occasional weekend invitational or holiday practices may also be scheduled by coaches.
Transportation is provided for all practices and competitions that take place during the week. Transportation is not provided for practices that take place before the school day begins, late in the evening, or on weekends.
