Middle School Athletics

List of 3 items.

  • Overview

    All Middle School students are required to join two teams, or "squads" during both seventh and eighth grades. These offerings take place during seventh period. Girls on every team will have as much equal playing time as the substitution rules and speed of play allow, assuming that they attend all practices and maintain a positive attitude. We do make necessary exceptions with the positions of goalie, pitcher and catcher, as these positions require very specific training demands, experience and skills.

  • Levels of Participation

    Varsity
    Varsity teams are comprised of very skilled and dedicated athletes who wish to compete at a high level. Varsity teams emphasize a significant level of fitness, skill and commitment, along with a focus on individual improvement and teamwork. Many varsity participants regularly train out-of-season and play both inside and outside of school. While winning is not the primary goal, Bryn Mawr aspires to have competitive teams at the varsity level. Playing time at the varsity level is not guaranteed.

    Junior Varsity
    Junior Varsity teams focus on improving basic skills while teaching increasingly sophisticated game strategies and techniques. Good sportsmanship, teamwork and a high fitness level are also emphasized. It is our goal for all players to have playing time; however, in games of close competition, some girls may not play. While JV athletics is a primary source for Bryn Mawr's varsity teams, JV players (including seniors) will not necessarily move to the varsity level of competition.
