FIFTH AND SIXTH GRADE
Physical education class is required for all fifth and sixth grade students and is included during the school day. The students participate in a variety of games, physical activities and sports to develop basic athletic skills and to experience the joy of playing. We provide a balanced program where our students are introduced to a variety of sports, fitness activities and cooperative games. The wide range of activities will both help develop our students and give them the experience to make an educated choice when entering seventh and eighth grade athletics.
SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE
Masters Athletics is an integral part of our tradition and commitment to educating the whole child. Our seventh and eighth grade athletic offerings are integrated within our Physical Education program and requirements. Our goal is to develop our athletes through a balanced approach of challenging programs. We offer a wide variety of activities so that our students can learn life lessons through sports, and experience the exhilaration of competition and teamwork.
Athletics brings our community together and our students create strong relationships while playing alongside their friends and classmates. Our teams strive to win but more importantly we strive to create an atmosphere that embraces the many benefits athletics has to offer. Guided by a positive learning environment our athletes develop their leadership skills, self-discipline, and a sense of responsibility, values through sportsmanship, athletic skills, and a sense of school spirit.
Our campus athletic facilities include five expansive playing fields for lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, baseball, and softball, a competition track, nine tennis courts, plus the Fonseca Center, a 75,000 sq. ft. Athletics and Arts Center, which features state-of-the-art facilities for basketball, volleyball, squash, swimming and fencing.
