The Athletics program at Shady Hill is designed to provide students with the opportunity to study a single sport in-depth each season. The goal of the Shady Hill Athletics program is to develop skills and teamwork, while promoting good sportsmanship, school spirit, and fun. We aim to keep our teams small, providing a good player-to-coach ratio and allowing for considerable playing time in games. The program begins in Sixth Grade as students participate in an age-appropriate sport of their choice that will prepare them for the department's culminating Seventh and Eighth Grade program. The Seventh and Eighth Grade program consists of students in both grades and continues to reinforce Shady Hill's values and mission, as well as the Athletic Department's mission, by offering a variety of interscholastic, non-interscholastic and intramural options.
