Middle School

Athletics

Whitefield Academy considers participation in athletics to be an integral part of a student’s overall educational experience. Middle School athletics exist not only to help build competitive programs at the varsity level but also to provide opportunities for students to acquire skills, develop character, and to represent Whitefield Academy. Student-athletes in the Middle School train and compete under the motto: “Work Hard. Play Hard. Honor Him.”

Whitefield’s Middle School encompasses grades five through eight, and athletic offerings vary by grade level, with a number of sports available starting in the fifth grade. Teams are coached by a combination of faculty and community coaches, with the varsity coach for each sport giving oversight to the program. In addition to sports-specific practices, Middle School students benefit from physical education classes, morning workouts and summer workouts that include both strength and cardiovascular training, and access to on-site athletic trainers.
