Friends Academy’s after-school interscholastic sports program is open to students in grades 5-8. Coaches guide and motivate students in skill development, tactical decision­‐making, and physical fitness. The ultimate goal is to instill in each student an appreciation for effort, teamwork, and fair play.

We encourage students of all experience and ability levels to participate in athletics. For the schedule of practices, games, and meets, visit the School Calendar page. Note: All spring 2020 athletics have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 school closure.
