Athletics at Thayer

Thayer’s tradition of excellence in athletic competition complements a rigorous and challenging academic program. All students, grades six through twelve, can choose to play on interscholastic teams. Although participation on team sports is not a requirement, nearly 90% of our students play at least one sport and many are two- or three-season athletes. Through team sports, students are encouraged to reach their potential in physical fitness, skill development, and teamwork. Sportsmanship, discipline, and leadership are emphasized by coaches at every level.

With the expansion of our Health & Wellness Program at the Upper School, we hope to educate our students in skills that will enhance their overall physical fitness and self-esteem. We stress lifelong activities, exercise physiology,and CPR training. 

Faculty members at Thayer Middle School believe that athletics opportunities at school provide students with skills and interests they can learn now, and continue to develop throughout their lifetimes. Athletics also give students a sense of commitment to the school community. Therefore, the athletic requirement for Middle School students may be fulfilled by participating in either: 1) Intramural & Fitness offerings that include team and lifetime sports activities, fitness, and new games; or 2) interscholastic team sports.
