Lower School Athletics

Beginning in Kindergarten, Lower School students have opportunities to participate in after-school sports, using exceptional athletic facilities right on campus. The athletics program builds skills, sportsmanship, collaboration and school spirit. It also promotes healthy habits and fun.
Athletic teams are open to all students in Kindergarten-Grade 5, and leagues closely mirror Annie Wright Middle and Upper Schools. Annie Wright coaches hold practices one to three times weekly, and students are ready for pick up by 4:30 pm. Games are generally held on weekends.
