¡Vamos los Dragones! Allez les Dragons ! Let’s go Dragons!

The Athletics program is open to all students in Middle School. The goal of the program is to develop athletes who demonstrate good sportsmanship by showing respect to teammates, officials, and opponents. By engaging in competitive games against other schools, players are guided by their coaches to persevere through physical and emotional challenges while learning new skills and improving their current skill level. Our three Athletics seasons (Soccer, Basketball, and Track) provide our Middle School students with opportunities to flourish as team players who are comfortable and adept at collaborating to achieve common goals. The playing field is another arena where our students practice their communication skills by strategizing and encouraging one another.
