The purpose for the lower school athletic program is to allow students to try different sports, begin developing skills, to have fun playing with their classmates and to learn good sportsmanship. Academic restrictions are the prerogative of the parent. There is a fee to play each sport, which provides each participant with a uniform. The cost of each sport is identified on the sign-up form.

FLAG FOOTBALL
