After School Athletics

Go Sharks!

Athletics are an important part of any adolescent experience. 

By being part of a team, students learn new physical skills and how to work collaboratively, accept feedback, and overcome adversity. What they learn on the field and in the gym supports their academic, social and emotional growth 

Everyone interested may join the team - there are no tryouts. 
We strive to accommodate all students, and there are never cuts.Athletics Director Coach Z
