Athletics has been an important part of our tradition for over 55 years and our teams have excelled in all sports and showed a tradition of great sportsmanship. We are current members of the IESA and take part in all state-run tournaments. We hope that your son/daughter has a memorable and enjoyable athletic experience.

We currently compete in boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, girls cheerleading, boys and girls track, girls volleyball and boys and girls declamations (speech), and Scholastic Bowl. Grades 5th through 8th are allowed to participate.

  • The soccer season runs from early August 1 til mid - September
  • The girls basketball season runs from Sept. 1 til mid - December
  • The boys basketball season runs from Oct. 15 til mid - February
  • Girls volleyball season runs from Dec. 1 til mid - February
  • Scholastic Bowl runs from October - March
  • The boys and girls track season runs from March 1 til mid - May


We are always in need of volunteers at our games. This includes coaches, ticket takers and concessions. We could not run these programs without the help for our volunteers.

Practice times

The coaches do the best job they can scheduling the practices for each team, however we have to be flexible do to special events and weather changes. So some practice times may change, but the coaches will do the best they can at keeping them consistent and making sure all parents have a schedule. We also have an online schedule of the games and practices that you can access. Please check with your coach about the online scheduling.


The most important thing that we ask of all our players, coaches and fans is that we all show great sportsmanship at all events. We are here to teach our students the skills of each sport so that they may compete on this level but we are also teaching to show great sportsmanship in both winning and losing. We are here to give our kids an opportunity to be on a team and have fun during these elementary years.
