General Information about the Sixth Grade Athletic Program:
The sixth grade athletic program is designed to give students the opportunity to participate on a team at various levels of competition and commitment. We will offer as many sixth grade teams as are necessary based on the number of participants and the skill level of individual athletes. The emphasis of sixth grade sports is less on winning than on sportsmanship, building skills, learning to work as a team, and providing each player a chance to participate in structured competition.We do have some stratification in sixth grade sports when it comes to basketball and girls volleyball. We find that having “A” teams and “B” teams help students advance at a level more suited to their ability. We have many students who have not played sports and need the opportunity to learn the basics while others are more experienced or have a higher skill level and need a little bit more of an advanced teaching approach. The league also offers a program that has a “A” league and “B” league and it works well with our philosophy.
