Our athletic department offers students the opportunity to participate in life-long physical fitness activities. Beginning in Pre-K, students participate in gym classes every week where they learn age-appropriate sports and skills (including volleyball, roller-skating and more) in a fun setting. 

A major goal of our sports program is to be promote sportsmanship and team-building through role modeling and demonstration. Our athletic teams provide an additional opportunity for middle school students to work on relationships on and off the court, relate to adults as coaches, spectators, referees, and learn to work with peers as teammates and opponents.

Intramurals provide an additional opportunity to hone skills while participating in athletic activities. Students work to improve their knowledge of the rules, skills, and nuances in a wide variety of individual and team sports. Intramurals include:

  • Badminton
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Floor Hockey
  • Golf Instruction
  • Mini-Golf
  • Softball
  • Table Tennis
  • Volleyball

Being on a Schechter team requires each athlete to take on the responsibility to represent our school in a way that reflects the values, practices, and beliefs of Solomon Schechter. Athletes are expected to display respect toward opponents, referees, teammates, coaches, and facilities. Our coaches instill a love of the game and pride of accomplishment as individuals and as a team. Inter-scholastics include: 

  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Track

At Schechter I found a passion for learning and teachers who helped me grow. I am grateful for the time I have spent at Schechter and know it helped form the person I am today.
