Athletics Participation

Upper School students in Grades 5 through 8 may participate in interscholastic athletic teams after school. There are three seasons - Fall, Winter, and Spring. Team sports offerings include soccer, basketball, softball, baseball, and lacrosse. We also offer cross country, swimming, golf, tennis, and volleyball clubs. The Woods Academy competes against area schools with similar athletic program philosophies. Most of our games take place in the Maryland and DC area. When applicable, students in Grades 5 & 6 participate on Junior Varsity (JV) Teams and students in Grades 7 & 8 participate on Varsity Teams. All student in Grade 5 through 8 who wish to participate in athletics must submit a completed Upper School Sports Permission Slip.
